The Glory of Christ

Text: Colossians 1:15-20
Speaker: David Alexander
Date: May 30, 2010

This is probably the fullest brief description in the whole New
Testament of the person and work of our Lord Jesus. But Paul wasn’t
simply presenting cold data. He was writing a pastoral letter to a
young church that was being tempted to tone down their focus on Jesus,
and to add some other things to their beliefs that would make them
more culturally acceptable in a pluralistic society. Things haven’t
changed much in nearly 2000 years, have they?

How does Paul combat this temptation? He shows the Colossians how
magnificent Jesus really is, so that they will know him, have full
confidence in him, love him, and praise him. May these things also be
true of us as we consider this Scripture together.
