Colossians: Why Me, Lord?

Why would anyone seek to reconcile with an enemy who hates them and wishes them harm? Why me, Lord? Paul is explaining to the Colossians God's amazing offer.

Colossians 1:19-22
Romans 5:9-10,8:7,8:31-32
2 Corinthians 5:18-21

This is the most wonderful scene that the universe will ever witness; a beseeching God, an imploring Savior, standing at the door of the sinner’s heart with eternal salvation in His hand, knocking for entrance and begging to be let in; the insulted Omnipotent Creator of the universe, beseeching a worm, whom an exercise of His will could sink in a moment to hell, and His justice be glorified in the act, to accept His pardoning mercy, and waiting year after year, in all longsuffering, for the sinner’s reconsideration of his obstinate refusals. Be astonished, O heaven, at God’s unutterable mercy, and be horribly afraid, O earth, at man’s indescribable wickedness. Here is the climax of God’s divine love, and man’s desperate depravity. John Angell James An Earnest Ministry

Colossians: God Moves to Reconcile

Why would a God, whom we offended, seek to reconcile with us? What does this teach us about Him? Let's look to Colossians for the answers.

Colossians 1:9-21

Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:
  • How is preeminence of Christ over all things shown in this passage?
  • Why is this so unsavory to the world... especially today?
  • Why should it not worry us that such power is in this God's hands?
  • What does it mean that God is: relational, others oriented, and sacrificial?
  • Why is it not the normal way reconciliation works that God chose to reconcile and to do something dramatic to bring it about?

Jesus Rose from the Dead?... Are You Serious??... Yes!!!

How can we know... for a fact... that Jesus really did rise? And why is that great news and possibly unsettling?

Matthew 27:57-28:20
Acts 2:32-36,17:30-31
Romans 1:3-4
1 Corinthians 15:22
Psalm 130:3
1 John 2:1

Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:
  • Why do we believe some people when they tell us something is real or it really happened?
  • Why do the facts of Jesus' resurrection and the eyewitness accounts point to the fact that He did rise?
  • Why do you and I need a risen Savior?
