Business guru Seth Godin speaks of the difficulty of "the dip." When we set out to accomplish something, if it's anything of significance, we will eventually come to a point in time when the effort we invest does not seem to yield any progress or success. We are faced with a decision. Is this a dead end, where we should turn back? Or is this something we should push through in order to achieve our goal? Is this "the dip?"
Christian growth involves an experience of the dip. As we seek to grow, we encounter periods of frustration and uncertainty. But Colossians is clear: we are never at a dead end if we are seeking to grow in Christ. We are in the dip. Because in Christ all the fullness of deity dwells.
Passage: Colossians 1:21-2:5
