Sermons from Colossians

Are You Consecrated?

Are You Consecrated?

Date: December 28, 2014 | Speaker:

The well-known preacher, Jonathan Edwards, once wrote the following New Year’s resolution: “I will live for God. If no one else does, I still will.” He was making a commitment to consecrate himself to God regardless of the decisions or opinions of others. The word consecrate means to set apart, and the Bible says our lives must be set apart for God’s use. Are we willing to consecrate ourselves to live for God, even if no one else does?

You’ve Been Forgiven. Live Like It!

Date: October 12, 2014 | Speaker:

When you think about your plans for the future, what percentage of those plans revolve around you, your needs, your dreams, your happiness, your money, your comfort? How is it possible that those of us who call ourselves followers of Christ are so preoccupied with our own agenda rather than being totally consumed with His agenda? Because of what Christ has done for us, we have been called to live our lives entirely for Him. What would it take to move you from where you are to that kind of life?

The Humiliation of Christ

Date: June 29, 2014 | Speaker:

When we read in the Bible that Jesus left heaven and came to earth to save us, do we have any idea just what that really means? The King of glory laid aside His royal robe and wrapped Himself in human flesh. He exchanged His home in heaven to have no place to lay His head on earth. He willingly endured mocking and slander, was abandoned by His closest friends, suffered an excruciating death on a cross, and He did it all for you!

Trading Your Past for God’s Future

Date: May 18, 2014 | Speaker:

“If God has forgiven me, why don’t I feel forgiven?” Have you ever asked that question? As Christians, we know that God has forgiven all our sin and He has promised to never remember it again. Why, then, do we so often still feel haunted and condemned by things in our past? If you’ve ever wrestled with this issue, today’s sermon will help you understand why that happens and how you can move beyond your past into the future God has for you! (Audio problems at the beginning will clear up within the first few minutes)

The Eternal Man

Date: January 26, 2014 | Speaker:

“This world is not our home; we are looking forward to our city in heaven, which is yet to come.” – Heb. 13:14 (NLT). God is bringing His plan of redemption to pass, and throughout history we can see the different ways that plan is being brought about. We are living in the age of grace and are looking forward to the age of the kingdom. 2 Cor. 6:2 says “Now is the day of salvation.” We should be getting acquainted with the eternal God today! How well do you know Him? Is He sitting on the throne of your heart, or are you?

Are We Living Worthy of the Gospel?

Date: May 26, 2013 | Speaker:

Philippians 1:27 urges us to live lives worthy of the gospel of Christ. This literally means that our lives should give equal weight and value to the sacrifice that Christ made by giving His life for us. If His death was placed on one side of an old-fashioned scale and our life was placed on the other side, would it reveal that we are living in a way that measures up to what He did for us? Are our lives an appropriate reflection of the gospel?

Living With Purpose Right Where You Are

Date: November 18, 2012 | Speaker:

It’s an awesome thing to see God moving through you to touch the lives of others, and the best part is, you don’t have to earn a special degree, write a best-selling book, or become a great speaker… God wants to use you right where you are with what He has already given you! Did you know that whatever you do for a living, you are just as ordained by God as the pastor who stands in the pulpit every week? It’s true! Today we look at three simple steps you can take to allow God to start using your life in powerful, eternally significant ways right where you are. We encourage you to follow these steps of obedience and watch what God will do through you to impact the lives of others with His love, His light and His hope!

Choose Carefully What You Chase After in Life

Date: January 22, 2012 | Speaker:

What do you think the richest, most popular, most successful man in history might say about life when he reached the end? The fact is, we don’t have to wonder… we can know exactly what he said by reading the book of Ecclesiastes. Solomon had it all. He spared himself no pleasure and denied himself nothing his eyes saw. Yet he reached the end and summed it up by saying that he hated life, and all his pursuits were meaningless. Are the things you’re chasing after going to matter in eternity, or will they run through your fingers like sand?

Christ on the Cross: A Picture of Grace, Part 2

Date: April 3, 2011 | Speaker:

Where would your life be right now without Jesus? The fact is, you would be wallowing in sin, and you would be faced with a debt you could never pay. When Jesus died on the cross, he paid the debt for our sin and saved us from the wrath of God that was coming upon us. We did absolutely nothing to deserve this… that’s why it’s called Grace! Do we really understand all that God’s grace has brought to us? It truly is amazing grace!

Seeing Your Past Through God’s Eyes

Date: September 5, 2010 | Speaker:

Failure to see our past through God’s eyes can be crippling to our future. Sins and hurts from years gone by often continue to haunt us, making us doubt whether God has really forgiven us. But what we must understand is that God sees our past differently than we do because of what Jesus did for us on the cross. It is vitally important that we learn to see our past as God does, or it will keep us from a life of effectiveness for Him.

Engage Our Spirit-Giftedness

Date: January 24, 2010 | Speaker:

God never meant for you to be an “ornamental” Christian (remember the plastic couch?) Rather He wants to use you and has called you to a life of serving Him and others. The Scriptures are clear: You are gifted… You are a vital part of the Body of Christ… and You have a work to do in this world. His call to action involves using You to accomplish His purposes in the lives of those both inside and outside the body of Christ.

What on Earth Am I Here For?

Date: May 18, 2008 | Speaker:

Does your life really matter? Is there any purpose to it all, or is the day to day grind just a pointless, meaningless existence? Are you here by accident, or is there a reason–a mission–for your life? If you have ever pondered the question, “What on earth am I here for?”, this series will give you the answer!
