Truth for the week
quote for the week
“Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning of God’s new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonise earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord’s Prayer is about.”
truth for the week
For an overview of this weeks verses click here: Colossians 2:20 – 4:9
This week in Colossians Paul is talking to a community where there is a crash of cultures; a culture of Heaven and a culture of Earth. That message is just as relevant to us today as it was to the people of Colossae 2,000 years ago. We should live, as Paul keeps helpfully pointing out, as people who are already free, restored, redeemed and alive in all that Jesus has done for us. We can embrace this beautiful truth, the coming of God’s Kingdom has already begun, it started on the day Jesus rose from the dead, we can live a heavenly life here on earth right now, we don’t have to wait for our funeral to see what Heaven looks tastes and feels like!

We’re doing a 40 Day Bible Challenge as a Student Church to engage more with the Bible and the daily podcasts we do here as a church at STC Sheffield.
There isn’t a Foundations Daily podcast today, but there’s loads of other great resources out there to help you engage more with the Bible. Check out The Bible Project on Youtube, they have overviews of every book of the Bible and cover themes that run all the way through. If you’re wanting to delve deeper into the truth for the week check out their video on Heaven & Earth.
