This week a friend from our church suggested that we post on our website the section of Scripture we’ll be studying on Sunday. I thought that was a great idea. As he mentioned, it gives everyone a chance to read the passage ahead of time and hopefully will enhance our encounter with the truth of the Word on Sunday. If you are reading this and you’re a part of our church, I’d also like to seize this post to invite your prayers for our Sunday morning sermons. I desperately need God’s grace every time that I preach and I believe the more we pray in faith for God to move mightily through his word, the more we will encounter fresh revelation and insight from the preaching moment.
This week I’ll be preaching from Colossians 1:24-29. Looking forward to enjoying the passage together!
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, 26 the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. 27 To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 29 For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me. Colossians 1:24-29
