Rev. Sean Kilgo, pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Lawrence, KS, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel for a special Sharathon episode to study the book of Colossians.
St. Paul writes to the Colossians to strengthen their faith, love, and hope in Christ. By Him, all things were created. In Him, all the fullness of God is pleased to dwell. He has reconciled us to Himself by His death and resurrection, and He has incorporated us into His death and resurrection in Holy Baptism. Because we are in Christ, we are set free, no longer captive to philosophy and empty deceit. Our lives are hidden with Christ in God, and so we live the baptized life by putting off the old self of sin and putting on the new self in Christ with kindness, humility, patience, and love. We continue in steadfast and watchful prayer, walking in wisdom and speaking the truth of God’s Word graciously to each person as we have opportunity.

Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God’s Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen.
