Opening Prayer: Almighty God, you have given me Your grace to help me grow and become the best Christian I can be. Help me to continue to grow deeper in your grace this week. Amen.
Read: Colossians 2:6-23
Reflect: What does Paul mean when he encourages the Colossians to be rooted and built up in the Lord? Why does Paul talk about the things the Colossians eat and drink? What things tempt you to follow after rather than Christ?
Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.
Hymn: “Amazing Grace”
Amazing Grace! how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
The Lord has promised good to me;
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.
Thro’ many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright, shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
Closing Prayer: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1:7
