Offertory “All Things New” (Andrew Peterson)

 

Scripture Reading from Colossians 3:1–11 Seth Erickson

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

 

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.

 

Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.

Benediction Pastor Larry McCarthy, Jr.

ALL IN FOR JESUS

A Heavenly Mind for Right Earthly Living

Colossians 3:5–11

Kenny Damara

 

Three practices for heavenly living on earth

 

  1. Killing the old man, constantly (vs. 5–9)

 

  1. Clothing ourselves with the new man, consistently (v. 10)

 

  1. Considering ourselves one with every man, in Christ (v. 11)

Two weeks ago, I met a 104-year-old woman at our Independence Day concert. This past week a young actor (just 20 years old) died, suddenly and unexpectedly. The juxtaposition of these two lives reminds us that we have no idea when our own lives will end. Today really could be our last day on earth.

 

Such truths should make us reflect on the purpose of our brief and fragile lives, and on what we value and pursue with the time and energy God has given us. In light of eternity, are you ready to stand before God and give an account of your life? Living for Jesus is the only endeavor that will have lasting value. So seek Him in all you do!

 

For His glory,
