Honoring Faithful Co-Laborers

October 9, 2022 • Dan Challapalli • Colossians 4:7–18

Colossians began with a massive honor of Christ in Chapter 1, and ends with a massive honor of Paul’s fellow laborers in Chapter 4. The Gospel flourished and changed lives in the early church as a result of sacrificial laborers who gave their lives to this work.

The Trajectory of Jesus

October 2, 2022 • Brian McCormack • Colossians 3:22—4:6

When Christ comes to bear on a life, he tends to move from one’s heart, into one’s home, and ultimately into one’s neighborhood.

A Home Where Christ is Lord

September 25, 2022 • Dan Challapalli • Colossians 3:18–21

If the Bible teaches that the blood of Jesus makes peace possible in every area of life, then nothing is left unaffected by this reconciliation. God gets in our business — he’s not just concerned with how we live publicly, but with our personal and private lives, namely, our households.

Clothe Yourselves with Life

September 18, 2022 • Josh Loy • Colossians 3:12–17

Instead of the ways we have learned to “Forgive & Forget,” Jesus calls us to a radical form of “Forgive & Remember.”

Kill What's Dead

September 11, 2022 • Brian McCormack • Colossians 3:1–11

Scripture commands us to always be putting our sin to death. We start by asking a simple question: are we fixed on things above, or things on earth?

Why Seek Life Among Death?

September 4, 2022 • Erin Sanchez • Colossians 2:20–23

Jesus died without your participation to offer you an invitation into his gift of grace. So, why live as if you're still in bondage to earning?

Who’s Head / Whose Head?

August 28, 2022 • Joseph Sanchez • Colossians 2:16–19, Colossians 2:6–10

In the middle of Colossians 2, Paul’s attention is shifts from building the case for the supremacy and centrality of Christ, toward guiding the church at Colossae into true connection to Christ as the unrivaled head of their lives. Who’s head? And whose head should you be connected to?

From Death to Life

August 21, 2022 • Dan Challapalli • Colossians 2:6–15

Through baptism, we die with Christ and are raised to new life with Him — the One who triumphed over sin and death.

Spiritual Maturity

August 14, 2022 • Zach Hendricks • Colossians 1:24—2:5

Paul labored and suffered in his ministry to the Christians in Colossae because he longed for their spiritual maturity. We are invited to do the same.

The Reconciling Work of the Cross

August 7, 2022 • Dan Challapalli • Colossians 1:19–23

While sin separated us from God, Christ reconciles us back to God through his peace-making sacrifice on the cross. Our reconciliation is contingent upon remaining grounded in this hope.

The Preeminence of Christ

July 31, 2022 • Dan Challapalli • Colossians 1:15–18

The supremacy of Jesus over both the cosmos as well as his people, should result in his sufficiency. His preeminence is just a mere theological concept, unless it confronts our idolatries.

Growing in Knowledge, Discipleship, and Identity

July 24, 2022 • Aaron Tedrow • Colossians 1:9–14

As Christians increase in knowledge of God, their lives will be marked by discipleship to him based on their identity in him. (Our apologies for the audio issues in this week's recording.)

Introduction to Colossians

July 17, 2022 • Dan Challapalli • Colossians 1:1–8

The Gospel produces faith in Christ, love for our neighbors, and hope for eternity. (Our apologies for the audio issues in this week's recording.)
