Colossians 1:1-8. Do we really need anything more than the gospel to have assurance that we are God's children? Some believers appear to have some fullness to the Christian faith that we don't have. Some seem more spiritual and more knowledgable. Sometimes, when we look at others, we can feel inferior--as if we need Christ plus something else. In this introduction to the book of Colossians, the Apostle Paul assures the young believers at Colosse that since they are holding fast to the gospel, they do not need Christ-plus!
