Small Group Discussion
Read Colossians 1:15-20
1 - How would you describe Jesus to someone who has never heard of Him?
2 - If someone thinks Jesus is great - but does NOT believe Jesus is God, can that person be saved? Why or why not? (What about Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses?)
3 - What does this passage teach about creation? Why is creation an important topic when it comes to describing Who Jesus is (ie, why did Paul talk about creation in relation to Jesus)?
4 - In what areas do people struggle in allowing Jesus to have preeminence in their lives? Why?
