Sermon Snippets’ is an occasional series, taking bitesize chunks from our Sunday sermons. The following excerpt is adapted from a sermon on Colossians 1:1-14, preached by Nigel Styles last Sunday. You can listen to the whole sermon here.
Colossians is going to put Jesus centre stage.
The supreme Jesus.
The sufficient Jesus.
Christ is the message that produced the fruit of faith, love and hope. In Christ are all the treasures that will continue to bear fruit in every good work. Only in him.
So I need nothing more than Him. He is sufficient for the start of my Christian life. And he is sufficient for the continuing of my Christian life.
