Paul's Letter to the Colossians

We just learned about Paul's letter to the church in Philippi

Another letter Paul wrote was to a church in a town called Colossae which is now a part of the country of Turkey.

The people in Colossae had started to do things in their church that were against God's rules, so Paul wrote them to teach them the right way to act in their churches.

Colossians chapter 3 verses 1-4 is:

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your[a] life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
