Jesus Is Lord
Bible Text: Colossians 1:15-20 | Preacher: Pastor Steve | Series: That They May Know…Christ
Jesus Is Lord Of The Universe
Colossians 1:15-17 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.
The Spirit Of Error
Extra-biblical or special revelations (Galatians 1:9)
Salvation is by works (Ephesians 2:9)
A denial of or lack of FULL recognition of Jesus Christ as God’s only begotten Son (1 John 4:1-3)
2 Timothy 4:2-5 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths. But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.
Jesus Is Lord Of The Church
Colossians 1:18-20 Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
Who Is Jesus?
Jesus is the HEAD of the church therefore our authority and power
Jesus is the BEGINNING of the church, He started the church
Jesus is the FIRSTBORN from the dead, our resurrection and life
Jesus is in EVERYTHING, and nothing is left out
Jesus is totally and completely God in ALL His FULLNESS
Jesus RECONCILED to Himself ALL things as our ATONEMENT
Jesus is our PEACE by His blood shed on the cross
Jesus Christ Is Lord
There is NOTHING that we cannot OVERCOME!
Jesus Is Lord In Our Lives
Colossians 1:22-23 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight — if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
How do we become resentful?
We allow irritations over little things to PILE UP
We allow little things to become really BIG things
We allow the BIG things to BLIND us
What can we do to overcome our resentments?
Humble ourselves and admit our own inadequacies
Remember the Lord who reconciled us, and His character
Focus on how the Lord has saved, supported and served us
2 Corinthians 5:18-21
