Seven Ems of Understanding

The Seventh Em
—Myself (a lesson from Colossians)

In three places in Colossians, Paul makes key statements. If we understand the great truths behind these three verses, then we truly understand ourselves and our intended destiny.

Below are the three verses and the three amazing blessings they promise you and me...

1 Made an heir with the saints

Colossians 1:12 "The Father... has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light."

2 Granted new life in baptism through faith

Colossians 2:12 "Having been buried with him in baptism... you were also raised up with him through faith..."

3 Hidden with Christ in God

Colossians 3:3 "Your life is hidden with Christ in God."

This is who you are and what you are. To understand this is to truly understand yourself and to be truly fulfilled.
