• True Fulfillment is found in the person and work of Jesus Christ alone. The gospel is the only source of true fulfillment. If we add or take away from Christ as we look to grow spiritually we actually hinder our growth.
  • The gospel is not just for lost people to get saved but for saved people to find fulfillment and fuel for the Christian life. We learn the people in Colossae were living in faithfulness to Christ and love for one another because of the hope they heard of in the gospel.
This week we learn that the Colossae church’s gospel hope was based in the confident and certain expectation they had of heaven, which was based on the power and promises of God. The gospel that bears fruit, that transforms the heart and mind, that fuels faithfulness to Christ and love for others is the gospel that includes the full assurance of salvation. An assurance based on the power and promises of God. This full assurance is the first key to finding true fulfillment.

Just as with the Colossae Church, God desires for us to find true fulfillment in the gospel, which is the best display of God’s glory in us. This is a wonderful combination in the design of God. He is best glorified in us when we are truly fulfilled in Him.

Have you ever struggled to know how and where to find God’s will?

Have you ever struggled to live out God’s will?

As a result, have you ever felt disqualified and unworthy?

Paul is going to speak right into these issues in our passage. He is offering a fulfillment in the gospel that provides the knowledge of God’s will, the power of obedience, and a rescue that is life transforming.

Knowing God’s Will comes by revelation of the Holy Spirit in alignment with the Scripture. Being enlightened and empowered by the Sprint is where mature Christians find true fulfillment to live in faithfulness to Christ.

This week, we look specifically at the person of Jesus Christ. Paul writes a beautiful hymn of deep and powerful truths about who Christ is. In Christ alone we find the beauty of divine fulfillment, which fuels our single minded loyalty and life-long faithfulness to Christ.

This week, we continue our journey through the book of Colossians. Here Paul calls us to suffer with Christ so the Christian will mature in Christ and discover the treasures of Christ. This call to suffer, however, is based on the three truths we have discovered in our first three weeks:
1) Our faithfulness to Christ and love for others is fueled by the hope we have in the gospel,
2) that the knowledge of God’s Will comes through the revelation of the Holy Spirit in alignment with Scripture, and
3) the supremacy of who Christ is, which wins our single-minded loyalty and life-long faithfulness to Jesus alone.

Paul continues through the book of Colossians building his argument for a gospel-driven Jesus-centered approach to spiritual growth. This week we learn that how Paul approaches spiritual growth is different than how we naturally respond.

Over the course of our study we have been discovering a gospel-driven, Jesus-centered approach to our spiritual life. Paul has exposed us to some radical freedom in Christ and a few life changing ways we approach spiritual maturity.

Today will be no different. We are going to see an approach is the do’s and don’ts of Scripture that have the potential to set us on a path of freedom and glory of which we have never experienced before.

This week, the Apostle Paul encourages us to use our freedom to Worship from the Inside Out. When we truly realize the grace God has provides us, freeing us from sin, and fulfilling us to follow Him….worship flows from the heart leading to others being encouraged and Christ being glorified through our lives.

We live in a broken world and our homes are under attack. Specifically, the enemy is attacking marriage and parenting. But this morning we are going to see how the message of Colossians can be applied to these relationships in the home so that we find victory to restore the home to God’s design.
 
If you remember, Paul began chapter 3 by urging believers to “seek and set our minds on Christ.” He will close the chapter in the same way. Wives are to “seek” Christ as their example of submission; husbands are to “seek” Christ as their example of love; children are to “seek” Christ as their example of obedience, and Parents are to “seek” Christ for His purpose in their parenting.
 
If we will seek at set our minds on Christ we can have Him at the center of our homes and restore the image and the spread of the gospel and glory of Christ.
