3-17-19 Faith, Hope and Love - The Gospel must be "True" and "Understood"

Pastor Mike Filippi continues his teaching in the book of Colossians. We are in the "introduction" phase of the book as we get acquainted with the theme and the purpose of the teaching. In this lesson we learn about Faith, Hope and Love...Faith and Love "spring from" Hope. What are biblical definitions of these terms? We find that the kind of Christianity that produces fruit (Faith, Hope and Love) will only come from knowing the "true Gospel" - nothing less will do. Unless the Gospel is "understood" it will not have the kind of impact it is designed to have. It will simply be lifeless, fruitless and powerless - religion.
