All To Jesus
Sermon Series Through Colossians
September 5, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 4:7–18
This week our Summer series through the book of Colossians is coming to an end. We will look at an illustrated review of our series (I apologize in advance for my poor artwork), then we will look into the final passage in Paul’s letter. We will see Paul’s love and concern for specific friends, and close with some final thoughts on what we can take away from this series. -John Corrigan
August 29, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 4:2–6
We’ve seen that Paul instructed the Colossians regarding living out of the new life given to them by Christ. This week we’ll see that he then turned the attention to those outside the church. In this passage Paul calls these believers to pray for those who need Christ and to look for open doors for the gospel to reach the lost. We will be encouraged to be steadfast in prayer and to be wise in how we seek to share the gospel with others.
August 1, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 2:16–23
This week our passage closes out chapter two and gives us more details about the false teachings that were threatening the church. We will see that although our “Adversary” tries to rob us and bring us into the darkness, Jesus is always calling us back into His light and abundance.
July 25, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 2:11–15
This week as we continue in chapter 2 in our Colossians series Paul reminds us of how a person can possess a new life of freedom; Our great and powerful God grants it to us. We will see that like the Colossians, if we have put our faith in Jesus, we have gone from dead and in debt to alive and debt free!
July 18, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 2:6–10
We are now entering the main body of Paul’s letter to the Colossians. Up to this point Paul had talked about how the Colossians had received Christ and what that meant. Now, as Paul gets into the main section of the letter, the focus shifts to telling the Colossians to continue to live their lives for Jesus, whom they had received. In our passage this week Paul contrasts the gospel tradition handed down from Jesus with “human tradition”, which does not originate from God. We will look at a couple aspects of this gospel tradition and see why the gospel is better than anything the world could offer us.
July 11, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 2:1–5
As we begin looking at chapter two of Colossians we see that Paul turns his attention to issues of the human heart and mind, not wanting these believers to be deceived by words that sound “good”. He reminds the Colossians that the treasure God offers them is far better than anything the world may tempt them with, so they should pursue Jesus with all their hearts. Join us as we look at this passage, and let God stir your heart and mind to desire more of the treasures He is offering to you.
June 6, 2021 • John Corrigan • Colossians 1:1–18
This Sunday we begin our summer series through the book of Colossians. Paul wrote this letter from prison to believers in Colossae in order to encourage them to keep growing in Christ despite false teachings that were threatening the faith of some in their church. Paul reminded these believers that Jesus is the supreme ruler who is more than worthy of their faith and devotion. All praise, honor, and glory belong to Jesus! As we look at the first 8 verses of this letter, we will see that the gospel works through hope, and it always bears fruit! Join us as we jump into Colossians!
