The Theology folder contains theological studies. The Reviews folder has synopses and evaluations of books and music albums. The History folder contains articles related to Church History. The Sermons folder consists of sermons that are preached in services at Oasis. New articles should arrive periodically.

Small Group Homework 07/06/2010

The following project, taken from the sermon on Sunday, is intended for discussion at our Tuesday night Small Group meeting and for discussion in individual families throughout the week.

Paul's goal in Colossians 2:1-5 was to remind believers that Jesus (and knowledge about Him/understanding of His plan) is our ultimate treasure. Others were trying to convince the Colossian believers that there was more to life than Jesus.

Your assignment is to find another (or several) passage that describes Jesus' value to believers, and then ascertain what in your life might be a distraction from that truth. What tempts you to think that other things are more important than Jesus?
