Ray Stedman - February 21, 1987
The Early-Day Saints
Scripture References: Colossians 4:7-18
From Series: "Expository Studies in Colossians"
As Ephesians addresses the Christian's life "in Christ," the theme of Colossians is "Christ in you, the hope of glory." Paul opens the letter with a magnificent description of Christ as the Creator of the universe, the Head of the Church and the Heir of all things. "At first glance it is hard to tell who are the Christians in this world. They are ordinary looking men and women, boys and girls. But according to the Scriptures, and in actual experience, confirmed again and again in many of our lives, being a Christian means we have an extra dimension to life. There is a hidden resource, an invisible reality, which the world does not have and cannot see. This is not referring to Christ being 'up in heaven,' lost in space somewhere! Rather, this refers to what Paul has talked about earlier in this letter, "Christ in you, the hope of glory." This extra dimension is not far removed in the reaches of space; it is right within the heart, an untouchable, invisible dimension within us. This is the glory of the Christian life and the secret of its power, joy and courage. If you have not discovered this yet as a Christian you have not yet begun to live as you can and should. This is what puts a smile on a Christian's face, even though he or she is in trouble."
