Exposition of Colossians Pt 2

Oreste's message on Sunday 27th January 2013 is available for download. The corresponding slides are also available.

In the second part of this exposition of Paul's letter to the Colossians, Oreste continues to explore the false teaching that had influenced the Colossian church. The contrast between fullness in Christ and the futility of the hollow and deceptive philosophies of the world, is seen and understood through the power of the cross. A life transformed by the power of the cross is a life that has fullness in Christ. Paul describes the consequence of living in such fullness as living a life worthy of the Lord and pleasing to Him. Jesus who is the supreme Saviour is truly worthy of our lives being lived for Him in this way.

In this message Sash talks about evangelism and uses the image of the cross as a means to motivate us towards right relationship before God and people. Sash reminds us of the potential eternal realities that face all of us beyond our present life as we know it.

Exposition of Colossians Pt 1

Oreste's message on Sunday 6th January 2013 is available for download. The corresponding slides are also available.

In the first part of this exposition of Paul's letter to the Colossians, a background and a broad outline of the message Paul is wishing to convey is provided. Paul's purpose in this letter is to address the false teaching that had influenced the Colossian church. As we go deeper into the issues Paul is addressing, the significance and supremacy of our Saviour is gloriously communicated, so we are left in no doubt about the position and power of Jesus in relation to all things in heaven and on earth and in fact anywhere and everywhere.
