Check out Sunday’s sermon from my series on “Priorities” on how to make God a priority with your time.

31 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

For those who are in Christ, God is on Your Side!

 

32 He did not even spare his own Son but offered him up for us all.

32 How will he not also WITH HIM grant us everything?

For those who are in Christ, God has given you a Way!

33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. 

For those who are in Christ, God has Forgiven you of all sins! He has “justified” you!

34 Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the one who died, but even more, has been raised; he also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us. 

For those who are in Christ, God has Cleared you of all Condemnation!

35 Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

36 As it is written: Because of you, we are being put to death all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,

39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

For those who are in Christ, There is Nothing That Can Separate You From God’s Love!

Colossians 1:24–29 “Anchored To The Mission”

 

24 Now I rejoice in my SUFFERINGS for you, and I am completing in my flesh what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for his body, that is, the church.

 

The Attitude of Ministry

  • Suffering brings Good to the People of God
  • Suffering brings Good to the Person of God – James 1:2–4
  • Suffering Unifies The Person of God to Christ – John 15:18–21

 

25 I have become its SERVANT, according to God’s commission that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, 26 the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. 27 God wanted to make known among the Gentiles the glorious wealth of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

 

The Calling of Ministry

  • The Servant Of God Is Called To Make The Word Of God Known.
  • The Servant Of God Makes The Word Of God Fully Known.
  • The Servant Of God Shares The Mystery Of God.

 

28 We PROCLAIM him, WARNING and TEACHING everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 29 I labor for this, striving with his strength that works powerfully in me.

 

The Purpose of Ministry

  • The Christian Proclaims Christ
  • The Christian Warns Everyone
  • The Christian Teaches Everyone

Colossians 1:15-22 “The God Who Is”

<<< The God Who Is >>>

15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

  • He Is The Image of God
  • He is The First Born

16For everything was created by him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things have been created through him and for him.

  • He is The Creator
  • He is The Reason All Things were created

17He is before all things, and by him all things hold together.

  • He is Before All Things
  • He is The Sustainer of All Things

18He is also the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything.

  • He is The Head of the Church
  • He is The Beginning

19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,

  • He is The Dwelling Place of God

20and through him to reconcile everything to himself, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

  • He is The Reconciler of All Things

 

<<< The People We Are >>>

21Once you were alienated and hostile in your minds expressed in your evil actions.

  • You

22But now he has reconciled you by his physical body through his death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before him

  • He Has reconciled you
