For the last three weeks our church has been studying the book of Colossians on Sunday morning. I thought a review of our study in the book to date would be helpful.
Sep. 22nd–Colossians 1:1-8
This passage encorporated Paul’s greeting and praying of thanksgiving for the the church. Paul is celebrating the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout these first 8 verses and inviting the Colossians to do the same. The outline of these verses was as follows.
Celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ
vs. 1-5a. Rejoice in Gospel Blessings
vs. 5b-8 Remember Gospel Progress
Sep. 29th—Colossians 1:9-14
This passage continues Paul’s lengthy opening prayer and transitions to Paul asking God to transform the church for His glory. I encouraged the church to echo this pray for our own lives, recognizing our need for God to make us what he wants us to be. The outline for these verse was as follows:
Ask God to change you for His glory
vs. 9-11 Pray for Transformation
vs. 12-14 Rejoice in Redemption
Oct. 6th–Colossians 1:15-20
Paul modulates his tone to communicate one of the most majestic descriptions of Christ in the New Testament. This passage invites us to come and see the glory of Jesus Christ.
Come and See the glory of Jesus Christ
vs. 15-17 Glory over all Creation
vs. 18-10 Glory over the Church
These messages and more can be found on our sermon’s page.
May the Lord continue to illuminate the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ as we continue to study this marvelous letter together.
