Heart for Each Other

November 15, 2020 | Colossians 3:9-16 | rise up

Full Transcript Available

This week, we will focus on the second quality, Heart for Each Other. We live in a time when it is easier to stay in touch, but people are starving for a in-person touch.

What’s the solution to our increasing loneliness and social isolation? A loving relationship with Jesus and through Him a loving relationship with one another. Jesus invites us to follow Him and belong to His family. In the apostle Paul’s letter to the Colossians, he reminded them that as Christ-followers they were to show a heart for each other. As followers of Christ, we are to show a heart for each other.

We can’t create more time in a day. We all have 24 hours. But we can decide how we’re going to spend those 24 hours each day. We can waste time. We can spend it doing good things. Or we can spend it doing the very best things. Learn how to make the best use of your time, so that you experience the joy and contentment of the blessed life. In Paul’s letter to the Colossians, he instructed them how to make the best use of the time that God had given them. As Christ-followers, we can make the best use of the time that God had given us.

Paul knew that faith and knowledge are not mutually exclusive, but indeed, they are mutually beneficial. An examined faith, where doubts are addressed and facts considered, is better than a faith that is held blindly. Paul’s purpose for writing the new believers in the city of Colossae was to help them add a growing knowledge of Christ to the faith they had already expressed by trusting in Him.

He wrote to encourage them to grow in their knowledge of Christ as the supreme explanation for all things, so that their faith in Him might also increase. We can grow in our knowledge of Christ as the supreme explanation for all things, so that our faith is increased.

Acts of Service

September 23, 2018 | Colossians 3:23-25 | service, worship

Full Transcript Available

All our service, at home, at work, and at church can be an expression of love and worship for our Lord. But it has to come from the heart. It’s all about serving out of our wholehearted love for the Lord, not out of some sense of earning or duty. So how can we express our love and worship of Christ through acts of service? In the book of Colossians, the apostle Paul taught the Colossian believers that they could express their love of Christ through appropriate acts of service. We can express our love and worship of Jesus through our acts of service.

Ordinary Living with Gospel Intentionality

March 6, 2016 | Colossians 4:2-6 | community, evangelism, gospel

Over the next few weeks we will be discussing how we can make the gospel the center focus of our lives by building relationships, sharing the gospel, and introducing people to our community of believers. Together, these three activities will not only result in a gospel centered lifestyle for us, but it will create an invitational culture in our church that will bring those far away from God into the Kingdom. This week we want to focus on the first strand of the three, which is building relationships with unbelievers by living with gospel intentionality.

Be Thankful

November 29, 2015 | Colossians 3:15-17 | discipleship, thankfulness

This past week we celebrated a national holiday called “Thanksgiving.” It is intended for us to celebrate all that we’ve been given and be thankful for our families and for God’s provision. Yet, we often have a hard time with this mark of being Christian. We struggle with ingratitude. We complain. Instead of being thankful, we’re often filled with a heart of ingratitude.In the apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Colossae, he told them that the result of having Jesus as their Lord and Savior was a heart of  thanksgiving.

Pastor Gary Combs continued our sermon series on the fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:22-23 by helping us understand how to let the peace of Christ rule our lives.

“A” is for Abilities

January 26, 2014 | Colossians 3:17-4:1 | discipleship

Pastor Gary Combs continues the “Shaped for Significance” series with this message from Colossians 3:17 through 4:1 about using our God-given abilities to bring glory to Him.

February 3, 2013 | Colossians 3:1-14 | discipleship
