Jesus Over All (Part 1)
Scripture References: Colossians 1:1-8
From Series: "Colossians: Always. Only. Jesus"
The letter Paul wrote to the church in the city of Colossae emphasized the nature, preeminence, and sufficiency of Christ. At the time, the church was struggling with confusing voices that were adding to that message by creating additional rules to follow or diluting the message by creating other pathways to God. Paul spoke into the confusion by proclaiming that Jesus is above all, the pathway to God is Jesus alone, and Jesus is in all, affecting every part of our lives. For the person searching or seeking to understand who Jesus is, Colossians is a beautiful introduction to Him and the message of hope that He brings. For the person who knows Christ and is seeking to follow him, Colossians is a beautiful reminder of the work that Jesus has done for us and how the gospel shapes our everyday lives. In this series, we journey through Paul's letter to the church in Colossae and find out how His words apply to us today.
