Colossians: Endurance and Patience

These are two traits every Christian desperately needs and Paul prayed for himself and others in Colossians. They are the very traits our culture seems unable to produce... in fact it produces the opposite.

Colossians 1:1-12

  1. Endurance and Patience, in the context of persecution, trials, the spiritual battle and the second coming:
  2. These are qualities we are to desire and get:
  3. Why we need these:
  4. How to get them:
    1. Pray: Colossians 1:11
    2. Know your Hope:
    3. Trials:
    4. The Bible: Romans 15:4-5
    5. Jesus’ example: Hebrews 12:1-4
Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:
  • How were endurance and patience described in the sermon?
  • Why is our culture so bad at helping us develop these traits?
  • Why does the Bible say these are so important?
  • How can we get them?
  • Why are trials so important in all of this?
