These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.

Bible Study Guide:

Renewed in Knowledge

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Christ is All.

This third study in Colossians focuses on Colossians 3:5-17.

Read Colossians 3:5-17

1. Colossians 3:1-7 Why should Christians stop giving in to their natural urges? What makes that possible?

2. Colossians 3:8-9 List some of the attitudes and reactions we must stop if we are to truly be living a new life with Christ. Think of some examples of how you used to react in specific situations and what the new self would do instead?

3.Colossians 3:9b-11; Genesis 1:26-27; II Corinthians 3:18 What kind of knowledge leads to being renewed in the image of God? What do you think “Christ is all, and is in all” means?

4. Colossians 3:12-15 Describe the characteristics of those who have “put on the new self.” How is “perfect unity” achieved?

5. Colossians 3:16-17 How do you think we can allow “the word of Christ to dwell in us richly?” What does that mean in daily life and when we come together to worship God?

6. How can you personally and your Christian fellowship or church think and act differently to encourage putting on the new self?
