“There is room for no rival.”

I love this summary of the message of Colossians from Floyd V. Filson’s little book Opening the New Testament:

“Paul’s central theme is clear. Jesus Christ is the one and sufficient Saviour of men. He rightly claims the full faith and loyalty of them all. There is no need and no place for all the angel worship, legalistic rules, and ascetic practices by which some Colossians were tempted to think they could reach God. In Jesus Christ, God has come to them; the Son has made the Father known, and given redemption and new life to all believers. He is the one Head of the church. There is room for no rival.” (148)

That’s a relevant message for Uganda. And the United States.
