Greetings in Jesus’ Name!
I am writing to ask you to consider giving extra to the church in
the next two weeks. This is the time of year when giving is at its
lowest and our budget is feeling the pinch in a big way. We are
also quickly approaching the time of year when our expenses
will be going up as we prepare for the fall and the ministry year.
Please know that we have been monitoring our spending very
closely and spend only when we must, but still find ourselves
with a significant shortfall.
If you have some specific questions about our current financial
situation please do not hesitate to email me
([email protected]). I would be happy to talk to you about
Thank you for reading this and may the Lord bless you richly.

Questions for discussion with
LifeGroups, family, friends, or
personal reflection.
1. What is your personal experience with purchasing or using a clever look-alike/
knock-off? Why did you opt for that instead of the genuine article?
2. Paul issues a warning in v. 2:8. Why do you think he uses the imagery of being
“taken captive?”
3. What are the basic principles of this “world”–verses 8 & 20? And “the powers and
authorities”–verses 10 & 15? How does Christ give believers victory over these?
4. Christ or deceptive human traditions? How do verses 11-15 expand on these
5. What current forms of teachings on false spirituality are you noticing in our
day? Why do you think some people, including those in church, seem to be easily
deceived by these?
6. What do you think it means to have “fullness in Christ?” How does this apply to
your personal life, your church life and your work life?
