Colossians 1:15 - 23
Bible Study Questions 1. How do you address the Lord Jesus Christ when you pray? Are you like Paul who varies the names or titles he uses for 5. Jesus? Do you think it is important when you pray to our Triune God, to be clear whether you are speaking to God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Spirit? Sometimes I hear people pray “Thank you Dear 6. Father for dying for us”. Is that correct? 2. Read John 1:1 – 5, 10 – 14. Identify every word and every phrase that indicates that Jesus
is God, equal to God (the Father). Which phrase seems strongest in affirming the deity of Christ. Many people do not think Jesus was and is God. They simply think he was a prophet or a great teacher. In your own words, how would you explain what we believe and why we believe this about Jesus. Read again Colossians 1:15 – 20 together. What phrase about Jesus in this passage impresses you and why? Is your view of Jesus connected to words like these when you pray and when you worship? Read Revelation 1:12 – 18 Pray together, using words and phrases from this and the other three passages in your prayers. Praise and worship the Lord Jesus Christ for all that He is and all that He has done. Take time to thank God that in spite of all your weakness, failures and sin, one day the Holy God will accept you into His presence “holy, without blemish and free from accusation”.
