Miracles at Colossae (7/8/18)

Pastor Brian Mull

Colossians 1:3-8

3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints 5 because of the hope reserved for you in heaven. You have already heard about this hope in the word of truth, the gospel 6 that has come to you. It is bearing fruit and growing all over the world, just as it has among you since the day you heard it and came to truly appreciate God’s grace. 7 You learned this from Epaphras, our dearly loved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, 8 and he has told us about your love in the Spirit.

Step 1- They heard the Gospel (Col. 1:5b-7)

It centers in a Person—Jesus Christ.

It is the “Word of truth” (v. 5)

It is the message of God’s grace (v. 6b)

It is for the whole world (v. 6)

Step 2- They Believed in Jesus Christ (Col. 1:4)

Step 3- They Were Discipled (Col. 1:7) 

Step 4- They Became Faithful in Christ (Col. 1:6, 8)
