Colossians 3:18-4:1

Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord and not for people…  Colossians 3:23

Last week, Pastor Len described the various qualities that a follower of Jesus is to put off and to put on.  What follows this is our text this week: a description of the various relationships that we keep and maintain.  In these core relationships with our spouse, family, and in our work, we begin to see the first and primary environments where our faith in Christ is expressed and realized.  The real difference of belonging to Jesus takes its first steps in the core contexts of our lives.  This helps us in making our faith foundational in our daily living as we seek Christ and the things above.
