Christ Over All

Fellow Workers
Is the Christian life more like a solo or a team sport? In this message, we hear from the often-overlooked ‘final words’ of the letter to the Colossians which gives us insight into what life is like co-labouring in God’s service. Outline Messengers of Encouragement (vv7-9) Fellow workers (vv10-14) Churches of the Word (vv15-18)

Speaking for Christ
Why do many (most?) Christians find it hard to speak about Jesus to non-believers? Outline Prayerful partnership (vv2-4) Seasoned speech (vv5-6)

Out of the Shadows
Saying ‘no’ can feel spiritual - I can’t eat that, I can’t do that today - but does it help us know God in Christ? Outline Don’t be judged …because of shadows (vv16-17) …because of false religion (vv18-19) Since Christ brings life (vv20-23) Mark 7

Continue in Christ
Even when it’s tough, Jesus is worth receiving and continuing in because only in him can we know God, new life, and forgiveness. Outline Continue in Christ (vv6-7) Don’t be taken captive (v8) Because in Christ …is the fullness of God (vv9-10) …is new life (vv11-13) …is victory (vv14-15) Continue, and watch out!
