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

Title: How to Live the Christian Life

Passage: Colossians 2:6-7

Speaker: Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

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

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.

Persevering in the Faith (Colossians 1:23)

Title: Persevering in the Faith

Passage: Colossians 1:23

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Faith is the condition that brings us the riches of Christ. Yet it is not any ‘faith’ that saves. The faith that saves is a faith that perseveres. Saving faith is not some opinion or momentary good feeling. It is not here one day, gone the next. Saving faith remains. The key idea is simple: believers must continue in the faith.

Reconciliation Accomplished & Applied (Colossians 1:21-22)

Title: Reconciliation Accomplished & Applied

Passage: Colossians 1:20

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: October 13, 2019

The goal of these words are headed into verse 23: if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast. Paul’s goal is in part to strengthen their faith and commitment to Christ. It is also to reaffirm for them that Christ’s work applies to them especially. So this is what I want you to see: We must remain committed to Christ because of what he has done for us.

Thankful for the Gospel (Colossians 1:5-8)

Title: Thankful for the Gospel

Passage: Colossians 1:5-8

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 21, 2019

Our text is Paul’s joyous thanksgiving to God. Verses 3-8 are one sentence in the original. The whole passage is an interconnected rhapsodic expression of gratitude of God.

Now I Know That the LORD Is Greater (Worship Service, January 21th, 2018)

Title: Now I Know That the LORD Is Greater

Passage: Exodus 18

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: January 21st, 2018

The story of Jethro is primarily given to us to make this important point: All men ought to give the true God glory for his wonderful works. Even during this time of salvation history where God is dealing primarily with Israel, God’s dealings with them is intended to bring all the nations to confess that Yahweh is the true God. Every man, woman, and child ought to give God the glory due his name. 

Testing (Worship Service, January 7th, 2018)

Title: Testing

Passage: Exodus 17:1-7

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: January 7th, 2018

When Israel demanded water, they were testing God. If you are a true believer in Jesus Christ, there is a lesson here about the character of genuine saving faith. A true believer does not test God.
