Paul takes a positive turn. After warning his readers to refuse religion, he focuses them again on Jesus. Using two similar commands -- set your mind on/think -- he encourages a glorious mindset. Jesus should be the center of our thoughts. Setting our mind on his death, resurrection, rule, and return will keep our minds from self-centered and self-destructed thoughts. Mindset matters.

Have you ever run into really religious people who come across as superior? Have you ever been that religious person? What is it about the word religion that makes us cringe? How do you respond when people call Christianity a religion? Well, if you read Colossians, you realize the apostle Paul was not a fan of religion. He undercuts the religious impulses infecting the Colossians. He wants a relationship with Jesus Christ as the focal point of the church, not a bunch of rules.

The Olympics. The Super Bowl. What a great season for competition. They say there can only be one champion. Well, here's some good news: If you walk with Jesus, his victory is yours. The apostle Paul talks about this truth in Colossians 2:6-15 as he transitions to the next part of his letter, the exhortation section. We encounter his first commands: Keep Walking! Stay Alert! We do this by walking in Jesus's victory over sin, death, and Satan. You CAN do it, too!

Sometimes our works is assigned. God gives it to us or it comes as part of our current life station. Other times work is selected. We follow a dream, pour out our hearts, make our knuckles bleed, and bear fruit. God made us to work. Our labors are intended to bring a spotlight on him and help others. The apostle Paul modeled a life of working for God and with God so others could grow in God. We should do this significant work, too.

Our view of Jesus can be too small, too pedestrian. This does not mean we do not affirm key theological truths about him: He is fully God, fully man; He parted waters; He rose from the dead; He will come again. Despite knowing these things, His intimate present, deep intercession, glorious reign, and imminent return comprise His immensity. The apostle Paul tries to capture this in a poem for the Colossians, which he then turns into an exhortation to keep going in their faith. We all need a grander view of Jesus.

Humans are capable of incredible resolve. We climb mountains, birth babies, run marathons, pull all-nighters, and listen to long sermons. Much of this we do on our own strength; God has made us resilient. However, some challenges exceed our ability to endure. We need a greater source for our resolve. We need God's strength, and we find it in prayer.

Before the Christ was a person, it was a position loaded with anticipation. In Jesus's day, people expected the Christ to be a strong king in the line of David, a holy priest, a prophet; some envisioned two Christs. Regardless, Jesus defied all the expectations becoming a Christ who would suffer for the people to set them free. This secured an eternal relationship with Jesus, whereby we are "in Christ" and he is in us. Indeed, Christ is more than position; he is a person who loves us.

What we save shows what we value. We save coupons, Christmas ornaments, plastic grocery bags, and a thousand other things. Each item signifies security, flexibility, utility, or identity. Jesus saved people, all types of people. His salvation is comprehensive, beautiful, and necessary. His title "Savior" is central to the Christmas story.
