Colossians

In Conclusion

Colossians 4:16-18 – This is the final concluding message to our series on Colossians.  These closing verses tell us something about the important role of the word of God in shaping what the early church believed and practiced.  Paul has a message he intends they hear and follow and he intended that same message for other churches in the area.  Ultimately that…

You’re Among Friends

Colossians 4:7-9 – As Paul brings the letter to the Colossians to a close, he mentions several important individuals by name.  These are important to us because they represent more than just a formal record of who’s who.  They represent relationships that have been forged because of Jesus Christ.  In this message and the next we examine who these people were…

A Philosophy of Worship

Colossians 3:16-17 -Now, not only have we been identified with the death of Christ and the resurrection of Christ, we are also wearing a “clothing line” designed for us by Jesus Christ.  One other thing comes to us from God, it is the word of Christ.  This message explores how successful transformation by Christ’s death, and successfully wear new clothes, must…

Now, That’s a Fashion Statement!

Colossians 3:12-15 – In the last message we spoke of wearing Christ’s hand me downs.  In verse 10 Paul says “and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created Him.   Paul goes on in greater detail and lists for us the things to put on that are fitting to be worn by those chosen by God, holy and having been…

Good Will Won’t Even Take These Clothes

Colossians 3:8-11 – The clothes you wear make a fashion statement.  Some may need to be taken off and thrown away because they don’t fit who you are.  This message explores Paul’s command to “put off” or take off in chapter 3.  These are characteristics that also need to be taken off and thrown away because they don’t fit who we are in…

Wiping the Slate Clean

Colossians 2:8-15 –  Paul has previously spoken of Christ as a treasure beyond compare.  Paul now uses another metaphorical picture.  With another command he warns the Colossian believers of those who would seek to plunder and rob the believers of this treasure.  The false teachers are attempting to convince the Colossians that there remains more to be accomplished…

Start Walking

Colossians 2:6-7 – Paul uses an interesting word picture to move forward after such a vivid and compelling description of Christ.  He commands us to so walk in Christ as you have received Him.  Why use the word “walk?”  In this message we explore what it means to walk in Christ.  What is it about my relationship with Christ that makes the use of …

Suffering for Jesus

Colossians 1:24-29 –  God’s pursuit of reconciliation to glorify Himself through His Son is still on the agenda even today.  In this  message we trace the path from the cross, to Paul, to us.    (Power Point)
