In the book of Colossians Paul tells believers to continue walking in Christ and his salvation in the same way that they received him. As a free, unmerited gift and not by works or self-effot.
This is part 4 of a series of sermons on Colossians which Jordan preached in 2015. In this series, Jordan teaches out of the book of Colossians and explains what God really expects from us as believers. Is his will heavy and burdensome? Must we work, effort and strive to earn his affection? Colossians answers these questions and points us to freedom, peace and victory that can be discovered in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Those who are in Christ Jesus have undergone a change in their spiritual identity. Where we were once darkness, we have now become light in the Lord. Learning to understand and believe this truth is key to having victory in our Christian walk.
In 2 Corinthians 5, the apostle Paul tells us that those who are “in Christ” have experienced a dramatic change in their identity. Those whose faith is in Jesus have a completely new relationship to God and the world they live. Understanding this truth is key in walking in victory.
Colossians 2 says that we are “complete” or “full” in Christ. This means that by having Jesus alone, we have absolutely all that we need for the well being of our souls. In this sermon Jordan unpacks these truths and brings an encouraging word for the struggling and weary Christian.
