Scripture Reading from Colossians 2:1–7


For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.


Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.


“Lord, I Need You”

Where’s Your Evidence?

Colossians 2:1–5

Pastor Michael Best


Three evidences of knowing Jesus:


  1. The church is united in __________


  1. The church is focused on ____________


  1. The church is firm in ____________

Are you ashamed of the gospel? Does the fact that Jesus is the only way to be reconciled to God make you uncomfortable? The gospel is mocked by many as foolishness, and it is increasingly seen as arrogant and even hateful. Do not grow tired of lovingly and humbly sharing the good news that Jesus died for sinners, even the worst of us, and that because He paid the penalty for our sin (past, present, and future!) we can be thoroughly cleansed and adopted into God’s family. Only Jesus could do that, and only by dying in our place. “I am not ashamed of the gospel,” wrote the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:16. I pray it is something that you joyfully affirm as well. God bless you!


For His glory,


Bill Bertsche
