Do you feel like you are on a treadmill of religious duty and have lost sight of Jesus? Do you want to know what God has to say about Himself and what His thoughts are toward you? This encouraging 4 week indepth verse by verse study covers the entire book of Colossians with a fresh approach to God's Word! As we learn more about the attributes of God, our position in Christ, His promises, warnings and commands through the Holy Spirit, we will have a different perspective on our life and the life to come.
Join me as we journey together through Pauls letter to the church at Colossae. Along the way we will discover that our circumstances don't define us, but our position in Christ does!

"Simply Colossians Bible study was amazing!! Living as a Christian my whole life, we were taught to be perfect. Don’t mess up or you might not enter the kingdom of heaven. This is nonsense! God is good and he is gracious! You learn that when you do this Bible study! That, when you truly believe in Jesus Christ, you realize how much you are loved and how forgiving God is. If you believe in the blood of Jesus and why he died for you, you will enter! And with all of this knowledge, you’re going to want to be a better person and get closer to God! When you understand the first part, you crave the next! I’ve never wanted to be so close to Jesus in my whole life. To understand the book of Colossians, it changes your whole heart! Mine for sure was changed!
"Since studying the Book of Colossians, through Simply Scripture, I have learned what Jesus has done for me. In Christ, through Christ, for Christ, and by Christ, I am complete. This study has taught me that what Jesus says about me is more important than what others say about me. This study has shown me that God relentlessly pursued me when I wasn’t thinking about Him and I was trying to do my own thing. In and through Christ everything exists and is held together and without Him nothing exists. And finally from this study I’ve learned five things to make sure that my past is not my present; Repent of my sins; Crucify my flesh; Get hungry for God’s word; Look to Jesus and; Renew my mind."
I was thrilled to have a workbook with this study. Workbooks are a simple way to make me accountable for studying God's word. Without accountability it's difficult to have a relationship with God. The guide helped me stay focused and forced me to answer tough questions instead of glossing over them. Vulnerability can hurt, but it's followed by much needed freedom and peace. God is so worth the extra time and effort!
