All Things for Christ (Colossians 1:16-17)

Title: All Things for Christ

Passage: Colossians 1:16-17

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

This morning we look at verses 16 & 17, where Paul develops the last phrase of v 15. We see here the supremacy of our Lord Christ over the whole created world. He is over all created things. This is a high and lofty claim. Why is Christ supreme over all things?

The Image of the Invisible God (Colossians 1:15)

Title: The Image of the Invisible God

Passage: Colossians 1:15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 18, 2019

Two big overarching ideas are in Colossians 1:15-20: Christ is supreme over creation, and he is supreme over new creation. He is Lord of creation, and Lord of the church. We must remember why we are followers of Jesus Christ. Being a Christian sounds quaint unless we know the glory of Christ. Col 1:15-20 is more than fancy theological speculation. We are dealing with intense spiritual truth here. Paul speaks of Christ, for the best remedy for false teaching is to know Christ and to know him well.

Walk Worthy, Part 2 (Colossians 1:9-14)

Title: Walk Worthy, Part 2

Passage: Colossians 1:9-14

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 4, 2019

The core of Paul’s prayer is in v 10a: so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him. We must walk in a way that shows the worth of Jesus Christ. We could never merit or repay the grace that has been shown to us in Christ. But having received such grace, our lives should magnify the worth of our Lord. Paul wants the Colossians is to live worthy of the grace of Jesus.
