A Glorious SalvationRev. Michael Calvert, Ph.D., August 26, 2018
Part of the Colossians series.
In this inspired word from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the believers in Colossae, we discover the liberating truth that our Lord Jesus Christ is enough! If we have Him as our Savior, by His grace through faith in Him alone, then we have all we need! And upon the basis of all that He has accomplished on our behalf, as so wonderfully set forth in these verses, we also discover the unshakable foundation for the assurance of our salvation and joy.
Thank you for your prayers as we prepare to come before our Sovereign King to worship Him and to hear His blessed Word proclaimed.
11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. (KJV)
