Main point summary
Paul now sings a glorious hymn about Jesus and His place in Creation and in reconciliation. He then recounts the Colossians' experience of reconciliation and admonishes them to "continue in the faith". This is done by being 1) firmly established, 2) steadfast and 3) not moved way from the hope of the gospel.
