"So Walk in Him"

Colossians 2:6-10 • August 30, 2020 • Monte Starkes

Colossians 2:6-10 "Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority."
