Seeking Heaven While Still on Earth

Colossians 3:1-11 Seeking Heaven While Still on Earth While the place of heaven is our destination, the way of heaven should be our pursuit.  As disciples, we are to put to death the deeds of this world and to put on the new self as we seek the things above. After Paul addresses the Colossians’ doctrinal integrity (1-2), he instructs their practical purity (3-4). Our behaviors originate from our beliefs. Seeking Heavenly Priorities (Col. 3:1-4) What Christ wants for your life…

Three Dangerous Self-Made Religions

Colossians 2:16-23 Three Dangerous Self-Made Religions The Apostle Paul saw three dangerous heresies present in the church at Colossae and we experience them today.  Biblical discipleship is sufficient and doesn’t need any alteration.

Christian suffering means that you are receiving the attacks that the world would give Jesus if He was still on the earth (Col. 1:24). Personal ministry is the Kingdom work that God gives us to steward during our lives…

Jesus Holds All Things Together

Colossians 1:15-23 Jesus Holds All Things Together Not only were we created through Jesus, but we were also created for Jesus.  As he holds all things together, even our spiritual growth is kept from shifting when it is placed in his hands.  “What comes to your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you.”  -A.W. Tozer Regarding the identity of Jesus, I need more than sincerity – I need clarity and accuracy. If my beliefs…
