SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE
at 9 a.m. MARCH 14, 2021
Paul summarizes his Letter to the Colossians when he writes in v.6-7,
"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving."
In other words, since you have received Him, then walk in Him. This is the best summary of Paul's letter to the Colossians. It says first, Jesus Christ is Lord and we have entered into His Lordship. Then second it says, here is what it means to continue to live in Him. "Living in His Lordship" reflects both Paul's apostle heart for the church at large and his pastor's heart for the people. We have all the resources to combat the false teaching of our day. Our union in Christ means Christians have been rooted and built up in him and established in the faith. In Christ they have been filled "in Him" with the same authority that Christ possesses (v. 10). In Christ they have been spiritually “circumcised,” or set apart from the realm of the flesh to that of the Spirit (v. 11). In him they have “died” to sin and have been “raised” to new life through Christ’s baptism of death and resurrection (v. 12). In him they have been forgiven of all their spiritual debts because of the cross (v. 13). In him they have the certainty of victory over Satan and death (v. 15).
We have all we need IN HIM to be established in the faith.
