Colossians: A Fruitful Life

As we start the New Year, we’re going to spend some time thinking about what a fruitful life would look like in our workplaces. We’re convinced that of all people, Christ’s life is the best. It’s hard to think of anyone with a greater reputation for living a good life or with a greater impact on history. It was a truly fruitful life.

So it’s interesting to find that the great evangelist of the early church, the apostle Paul, expects that the first followers of Jesus would “bear fruit in every good work” (Colossians 1:10). He goes on to explain that Christ’s life is not only something we should imitate, but also something that we share. “Christ”, he says, “is our life” (Colossians 3:4).

Join us over the next few Wednesday lunchtimes as we unpack what Paul means and consider how Christ might help us to live fruitful lives in our workplaces.
