Nailed to the Cross (Colossians 2: 13-15)

Title: Nailed to the Cross

Passage: Colossians 2: 13-15

The question is, how does Christ, in whom the whole fullness of God dwells bodily, fill us? Paul has already given many ways. Paul lists these blessings in order that believers might grasp by faith the glory of Christ. When we are assured of all that Christ is for us, we will continue to believe upon him. There are at least three powerful metaphors in our text. They are further reasons for of why we must continue to hold to Christ by faith.

The Word Became Flesh Part 2 (John 1: 9-13)

Title: The Word Became Flesh Part 2

This Christmas, we have listened carefully to John as he unfolds the great mystery of the incarnation. We say the eternity, person hood, and deity of the Word of God from John 1:1-3. Last week, we began looking at v 14 and the incarnation and dwelling of the Word. Now this morning, as I continue to expound this verse, I want you to see another facet of your Lord Jesus Christ.

The Word Became Flesh (John 1:14)

Title: The Word Became Flesh

Passage: John 1:14

As a distillation of monumental Christian teaching, John 1:14 is almost as important as John 1:1. In this Christmas season, it is good for us to consider the nature of the preexistent Christ, as we did last week. Today we will go further, however. John 1:14 shows three additional truths about the Word.

The Word Was God (John 1:1-3)

Title: The Word Was God

Passage: John 1:1-3

The story of the nativity is wonderful, but Christmas shines best when we think of who Christ is, and what his birth really represents. Jesus’ birth was not merely the birth of some ordinary Jewish child in a small obscure Jewish town. As our text today makes plain, that one that Mary bore was actually and truly God.

Filled in Christ

Colossians 2: 10-12

Speaker: Ryan Martin

Service: Morning Worship Service

Date: December 8, 2019

We have something better than philosophy in Christ because of who he is (v 9), and because of what he has done for us (vv 10-15). What has the Son of God done for us that makes him so worthy of our continued faith?

How to Live the Christian Life (Colossians 2:6-7)

Title: How to Live the Christian Life

Passage: Colossians 2:6-7

Date: November 24, 2019

At the head of a new section, Paul draws together all that he has been saying since 1:24 into a powerful, simple statement. Paul now puts things very simply. This is what he wants for them as an apostle. This is what he is aiming at in his ministry. Here is how to live the Christian life.

Lasting Treasure (Colossians 2:1-5)

Title: Lasting Treasure

Passage: Colossians 2:1-5

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Date: November 17, 2019

In Col 1:27, Paul stated the goal of Christian ministry: that we may present everyone mature in Christ. The word ‘mature’ means complete devotion. Our text today is a summary sketch of what it means to be a mature Christian. I’ve divided his depiction here of complete devotion or maturity into four ideas this morning.

Him We Proclaim (Colossians 1:28-29)

Title: Him We Proclaim

Passage: Colossians 1:28-29

How are we to help other spiritually? The answer to this is a more fundamental question. What is the nature of Christian ministry? In our passage, we see Paul explain his blueprint for Christian ministry.

Joy in Suffering (Colossians 1:24-27)

Title: Joy in Suffering

Passage: Colossians 1:24-27

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: November 3, 2019

If you’re a Christian this morning, you should expect to suffer. How will you respond when trials and afflictions turn your world upside down? These questions are why we need to listen to Paul. Paul says, Now I rejoice in my sufferings. How can Paul say that he rejoices in his sufferings?
