This coming Lord’s Day we will examine one of the most striking passages in all of Scripture. It describes the wonder, glory, sovereignty, and power of our Lord Jesus Christ in terms that are as awe-inspiring as they are mysterious. Our sermon text will be taken from Colossians 1:15-20. In this passage, which some New Testament scholars believe to be an early hymn composed by the first Christians, Paul provides us with a stunning picture of our Savior.
Here, the Apostle teaches us that Jesus is both the Lord of all creation (vv. 15-17), and the Lord of redemption (vv. 18-20). There is an abundance of eternal treasures in these inspired words, and I hope you will prayerfully meditate upon them as we prepare our hearts to worship our Savior together this Sunday.
