The Reformer urges every Christian to keep our eyes on Christ, keeping both feet firmly standing on the Word. In Luther's day, as in our own, the Church had deluded herself into thinking that she was the glass through which Christ was to be viewed.
The Church, as the Bride of Christ, must accede to His authority and power. The Church, then, realizes her freedom and obligations through the direct of Christ. On this path lies freedom. Therefore, Luther speaks to both the inner man and the outer ma The Reformer urges every Christian to keep our eyes on Christ, keeping both feet firmly standing on the Word.
Therefore, Luther speaks to both the inner man and the outer man. The inner man is a man of faith and hence possesses freedom in Christ; the outer man is a man of love and hence possesses obligation to all neighbors, friends and enemies alike. Each Christian is his or her own priest, freed by the intercession of Christ.
Each Christian becomes the servant of all who cross his or her path, and the Christian must seek the advantage of all others. In both freedom and service, the Christian rejoices.

Ralph Martin tackles this problem by asking what the apostle meant when he set out to instruct, correct and exhort the original readers of the epistle. From this inquiry he deduces certain principles of belief and conduct which may still be applied even though our situation differs in external details from that in which the Colossian Christians found themselves. The underlying intellectual and religious question is the same--what is man's relation to the cosmos and the powers that rule it?

The predominant theme of the book, as of the epistle, is the glory and Lordship of the risen Christ, in whom Christian believers have come to fullness of life. Professor Martin examines the "Colossian heresy," and shows that life in Christ brings complete liberation from mental and spiritual bondage to those merely human mystical notions that had only an appearance of "wisdom.
