2. Inheritance in Christ Read Book of Colossians
The Colossian believers were being led astray by false teachers who were challenging the divinity and supremacy of Jesus Christ. Paul corrected this error by declaring that by Jesus all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible. All things were created through Him and for Him. And that Jesus Christ is before all things, and in Him all things consist. He points out His pre-existence, His head-ship of the church, His divine fullness, his reconciling work, and the mystery of his indwelling in the believer.
We are to be filled with knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Paul warns against false doctrine and instructs steadfast faith in Christ. Also that the members of the church might be united together in love, having a fuller understanding of the spiritual mysteries of the Father and of Christ.
Paul encourages the church to heavenly aspirations and affections. To lay aside the evil passions and vices, and to put on the Christian graces and virtues. To see an infilling of the Word of Christ so as to be mutually helpful in instruction and praise. Do all things in the name of Christ.
Paul’s request for prayer and advice concerning social conduct

Living From The Victory Of Christ
Psalm 119:105,111 — Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
The attitude of those who live from the triumph of Christ is different than those who live under the influence of their past.
The only part of the past that we have legal access to is the testimony of the Lord. The rest is dead, buried, forgotten, and covered under the blood. The past should have no negative effect on the way we live, as the blood of Jesus is more than sufficient.
Living from the victory of Christ is the privilege for every believer.
Philippians 3:13,14 — “…..this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
