2. How would you describe faith? Compare that to Hebrews 12:2 and 11:1.
3. In Colossians 1:3-8 Paul says he has heard about the faith and love of the Colossians. How do faith and love work together?
4. Read Paul’s prayer in Colossians 1:9-11. What does knowledge of God’s will have to do with faith and love?
5. What excites or challenges you about Paul’s description of the gospel in Colossians 1:12-14?
6. Read Luke 10:30-35. Compare how the Samaritan shows love to how the two worship leaders do not?

8. How do you feel led to pray?
