Past sermon series - number one
In the book of Colossians, the Apostle Paul made it clear that Jesus is not merely a character in God’s story; He is the author of that story, the center of the story, the ultimate point to the story. He’s before all things. He’s above all things. He’s first in all things. In light of who Jesus is, one simple question must be asked today - is Jesus merely important to you, or is He truly number one in your life? Below you’ll find a brief introduction to the lessons and the audio files of the sermons. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
first things first (Colossians 1:15-18)
When Paul set about to explain Jesus to the Colossians, he built upon Epaphras teaching and exalted Christ. Nothing has changed in the last 2,000 years. Jesus should still be the center of our attention, the purpose behind our faith, and the One who directs our path.
where your heart is, there your lord will be (colossians 3:1-4)
Where do you look for guidance and inspiration? How do you get through difficult days? Do you put your trust in yourself, in the world around you, or do you put your trust in Jesus Christ?
a focus on the family (colossians 3:18-4:1)
If Jesus is to be important individually, He must be important throughout our families as well. In a few short verses, the Apostle Paul directs the path of parents, spouses, children, and even servants. While it may seem unnecessary to many, this perspective explains how families succeed and why families fail.
outsiders, the faithful, and christ (Colossians 4:5-6)
If Jesus is the most important thing to you, your conduct and treatment of those outside the Church should mirror His treatment of the marginalized. He encountered, encouraged, loved, and won over the forgotten of His people. Could that be a lesson for us? Is there an approach worth emulating when we undertake evangelism?
