Alive in Christ: Being Renewed

Series:

Scripture: Colossians 3:1-17

Though we often think we loose freedom by serving God, the Christian life actually liberates us to be what God always intended us to be – His images. By seating us with the ascended Jesus, God is in the business of re-making our humanity, particularly by teaching us to love. Therefore, we are to lay aside patterns of life consistent with our old self, who died with Jesus, and to live consistent with the new reality – we have been raised to new life free from sin’s dominating control.

Alive in Christ: Growth That is From God

Series:

Scripture: Colossians 2:16-23

How do we mature as Christians? Frequently, we look to spiritual techniques and rules to cultivate our spiritual lives. Unfortunately, our regulations and techniques quickly become things that we add to Christ, not means for communing with Christ. We are to cling to Christ, our living Head, who imparts life to us. Only then will we manage to treat our problems, and not only the symptoms of our problems.

Above all Powers

Series:

Scripture: Colossians 1:15-20

The gospel declares that Jesus Christ is Lord over all the earth. This changes everything about how we understand and participate in politics. Explore important questions like: Why is it imprudent to be overly elated or discouraged by an election? Why is the political sphere important, and a meaningful place for Christian engagement? And, how do we relate to political power?
