Colossians Sermon Series

False teachers were trying to chip away at the deity and authority of Christ, convincing the church at Colossae that Christ wasn’t sufficient to conquer the evil corruption of the world. So while he was under house arrest awaiting trial in Rome, Paul wrote the book of Colossians, giving us the single most concentrated teaching on the theology of “Christ.” Jesus is the answer for everything. He is supreme. He is sufficient. He is the one who has saved us from sin and changed us into new, living creatures. We have a new life because of Him. Paul wrote this book to make sure the church had a clear view of who Jesus is because that would lead to an overflow of heartfelt obedience to Christ, which would influence their region and ultimately the world for His glory.
