||What are the three great spiritual facts which the apostle prays that his readers may know? For the first of these facts see I Cor. 2:9, 10; 1 Pet, 5:10a; for the second see 1:11 (R.v.); Dt. 4:20, 32:9; Jn. 17:9, 10, 22, 23; and for the third see questions (2) and (3) below.
||Consider Christ's present position as set forth in 1:20-23 in relation (a) to God; (b) to other powers and authorities; (c) to the universe; and (d) to the Church. In the light of these verses, has our conception of Christ been large enough?
||Work out the contrast between man's condition by nature (2:1-3) and his position in Christ (2:4-10). How has this amazing change been effected, and are you taking advantage of what Christ has won for you? Cf. Rom. 6:1-4.
