Showing JESUS First Amid the Coronavirus:
WATCHING IN CHRIST Colossians 2:8-9
The Christian life is walking with Christ (2:6-7). As we are walking, Paul now extends a warning (2:8-9) and instructs us to watch our step. A warning is necessary because of false teachers (Mark 13:22-23; 1 Timothy 4:1-2). We must also be careful to watch our step because of false teachers (Luke 6:4344; 2 Peter 2:1-3).

FACE TO FACE Text: Carrie E. Breck Music: Grant C. Tullar
Face to face with Christ, my Savior, face to face—what will it be. When with rapture I behold Him, Jesus Christ who died for me? Face to face I shall behold Him, far beyond the starry sky; Face to face in all His glory, I shall see Him by and by!
Only faintly now, I see Him with the darkling veil between, But a blessed day is coming, when His glory shall be seen.
Face to face! O blissful moment! Face to face—to see and know; Face to face with my Redeemer, Jesus Christ who loves me so.
