The Treasure and the Chest


Sermon Audio:

Sermon Text:
Colossians 2:1-10

We all know what it is like to be deceived by something that sounded too good to be true. One of the chief aims in Paul’s letter is that the church will know the richness and truth of the Gospel in order that they will not be fooled by other messages that sound too good to be true.

Reflection Points

  • What treasures in your life can make the same claims as Jesus? Could they even accomplish them? Are any of them even worth comparing to Jesus? Have they or could they ever do what He has done?
  • Is your life characterized by encouraging the discouraged? Can anything other than the Gospel really deposit courage into your life or anyone else’s?
  • Is your life characterized by pursuing unity in love? What would it mean for you to be grace driven at home? At work? At church?
