Paul's final exhortation to the church in Colossae urges his readers to participate in God's mission to the world. He focusses on how we can participate in it through prayer and witnessing for Christ.


Working With God

Preached on September 29, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 4:2-6

How do we work together with God in His work of saving lives through Jesus Christ? By praying for God to give us opportunities to bear witness to Christ and His work in our lives.


Jesus And Work

Preached on September 22, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:22-4:1

Work has always been a big part of life for people to provide for themselves and their families, but is there any value beyond the grave? Jesus may have saved our soul, but is there any value in the work we do now that we’ve been saved? The Apostle Paul answers this question as he shows us how Jesus redeems work.


Slaves – Masters (Work Theology)

Preached on September 22, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:22-4:1

It's not what you do but how you do it that matters. This is true in how we work in this age. And how we conduct relationships at work is critical as we glorify God.


Jesus Centred Parenthood

Preached on September 15, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:20-21

After explaining how Jesus reigns in marriage, the Apostle Paul now gives the church a formula for how Fathers are to relate to their kids, and kids to their parents. A well ordered society begins at home, and so does a well-ordered life in Christ.


Parent-Children

Preached on September 15, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:20-21

In this talk we explore what it looks like to have Jesus as Lord as a child, teen and parent. We may not all be parents but we all need to reflect on how our parents impacted us.


Husbands And Wives

Preached on September 8, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:18-19

Colossians offers only two sentences on marriage but they are two crucial sentences - one for the husband, one for the wife. Even though broken marriages are part of living in a broken world, these two verses affirm God’s good gift of marriage.


Jesus Rules Marriage

Preached on September 8, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:18–19

After explaining how Jesus reigns supreme in the universe and fills our lives, the Apostle Paul moves to show us how Jesus also reigns in marriage. From this passage of scripture we look at God’s intention for marriage, what went wrong, and how Jesus redeems it by revealing the mystery that is the key to understanding what marriage is.


Fix Your Eyes on Jesus

Preached on September 1, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:1–17

After spending the first half of this letter reminding the church who they are as Jesus’ people, our Apostle Paul now tells us what it looks like to be a Christian. In a world that is full of distraction and lies, the call to God’s people is to fix your eyes on Jesus – and some helpful insights into what that looks like for every one of us today.
