Teachings of the Church

The Sunday school lessons for the month of May began a new unit topic-The Teachings of the Church. Paul a disciple of Christ, not one of the original twelve, was in prison, but he wrote epistles (letters) to the churches in Colossae (last week's lesson) and Laodicea (this week's lesson) to encourage the Christians to hold fast to God's word and their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and not be persuaded by false knowledge and the false teachings of others. He wanted them to be rooted in Christ. Paul wanted the new and young Christians to study to develop their complete understanding of God's riches. Paul used four words which should be indicative of a Christian walk with Christ. Christians should be rooted, built up, established and abounding in Christ to continually grow. Study Colossians 2:1-10. What does it take for one to be rooted, built up, established and abounding in Christ?
