September 27, 2020 – Colossians 1:9-12 To Please Him in All Respects
As the Apostle tells the church about his prayers for them we get an explanation of both the Christian life and the source of power that makes it possible. The sound quality of this sermon is below even our standards and so we apologize. This was recorded at an outdoor venue with a pastor who sometimes ambles away from the microphone.
September 20, 2020 – Colossians 1:2-8 We Give Thanks to God
The Colossians had some growing to do but Paul loved them and wanted to express his gratitude for what God had already done in them. How grateful are you for the good things God brings to others? How fruitful is your faith–is it saving faith marked by a love and a hope found only through the work of the Spirit?
September 13, 2020 – Colossians 1:2 To the saints
In using the word “saints” to describe the Colossians, Paul displays one of the marks of his own conversion: a willingness and an eagerness to see outsiders brought to God through Jesus the Savior. If a Pharisee can delight in calling Gentiles holy ones, what excuse would we have for divisiveness in the Church?
September 6, 2020 – Colossians 1:1 Paul… to the Colossians
Paul writes to the Colossians for three reasons. First, he wants to express his gratitude to God for their faith in Christ. Second, he warns them (and all Christians) against adding anything to our faith in Christ–whether philosophies or ceremonies–by which we would be forgetting our need for a Savior and diminishing our view of Christ. Third, he writes to teach us what living by faith in Christ should look like. Along the way he describes the greatness and glory of Jesus, both Who He is and what He has done for sinners like you and me and the Colossians.
To express all this to the Church (all believers throughout history) God chose men like Paul and Timothy whose biographies give credence to the message they preach. We must obey their teaching because it is God’s teaching.
