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

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.
