The final chapter of Colossians is personal and practical. Paul names his own Kingdom Team. It begins with Jesus as captain and then includes Jews, Gentiles, males, females, superstars, doctors, felons, and one quitter. The big idea is there’s room for anyone on Team Jesus.
Colossians 3 is all about getting the Kingdom into our lives while pushing out the corrupt culture. The longest practical application is not to marriage or parenting but to our jobs as bosses or bondservants. How we work is one of the greatest ways we demonstrate that our lives are lived for a different kingdom and our priorities are set by a better King.
