He Is More Than Enough
Paul's Concern for the Saints
Colossians 2:1-7 • March 18, 2018 • Paul Strahan
Today we see Paul agonizing over the Colossian believers. He speaks to them of maturing in their faith and challenges all of us that maturity is knowing Christ in a personal relationship. Furthermore, Paul in an indirect way teaches us that maturity is best achieved in community!
Presenting the Mature in Christ
Colossians 1:24-29 • March 11, 2018 • Paul Strahan
As we close out chapter one of Colossians, the Apostle Paul reveals one of the primary goals he has for them. His desire is to present them mature before the Lord. I want to challenge each of you to consider your own level of spiritual maturity. One day we will stand before the Lord. Let’s move toward maturity!
Who is Jesus?
Colossians 1:15-20 • February 25, 2018 • Paul Strahan
Who is Jesus to you? In this passage the Apostle Paul combats the false teaching that Jesus is just a good man. Paul confirms what Jesus says about himself. He is God in human flesh. If you are having trouble putting into words who Jesus is, allow the Apostle Paul to help.
Paul's Gratitude For The Colossians
Colossians 1:3-8 • February 11, 2018 • Paul Strahan
Today we look at Paul's gratitude for the believers in Colossae. He is grateful for their "faith in Christ", "love for the saints", and the "hope" that is reserved for them in heaven. He further mentions the importance of the gospel or good news they have received! Have others heard of our faith, love, and hope in the gospel?
