Description

Are Christians really different than anyone else?

What does a real Chistian look like? What is Christianity really all about? Paul's letter to the Philippians and Colossians answer these ponderings through their unique emphasis on practical Christian living. These books present that the basic beliefs of Christians are to make those truths the foundation of everything they think and everything they do.

In Philippians, Dr. Gromacki uses Paul's teaching to show Christians how they should conduct themselves in times of suffering, in witnessing for Christ, in preserving unity, in overcoming anxiety, in imitating Christ, and in cultivating joy and peace in their lives.

In Colossians, Dr. Gromacki explains how Paul sets forth the sovereignty of Jesus Christ over all creation and the church, and in particular, over every individual person. The reader is brought face to face with the majesty and glory of Christ, and challenged to throw aside other worldviews and philosophies in order to live in holiness before the Lord.

In both these epistles, Paul seeks to turn the attention of believers away from their old, sinful lifestyle to newness in Christ. Believers are challenged to grab hold of the righteousness that is accredited by faith, that might know Christ, "and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death."
