Get on your feet!
rooted
Colossians 1:24-27
The Point: Hope in Christ gives His body, the Church, the supernatural ability to endure trials and glorify Christ. Without death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, our hope is in vain.
 
I. Endure trials as he endured trials (v. 24).
II. Be good stewards, as he was a good steward (v. 25-26).
III. Proclaim His message, as he proclaimed His message (v.27).

    Once defiled, now reconciled
    rooted
     
    Colossians 1:21-23
     
    The Point: We tend to dilute the devastating effects of sin. Sin literally separates us from God. Jesus' blood made reconciliation for us so that our mistakes wouldn't any longer have those eternal consequences.
     
    I. Jesus death didn't just purchase our salvation, it restored our relationship to the Father (vs. 21-22).
    II. Once we're reconciled, we become missionaries to further the work of the gospel within the confines of The Great Commission (v. 23).

    Christ is Everything
    rooted
     
    The Point: In a world that teaches that Man creates his own destiny, the Bible teaches that Jesus knew our destiny before we ever knew the One who created us.
     
    Colossians 1:15-20
     
    I. Jesus made, therefore he keeps (vs. 15-17).
    II. Jesus saves, therefore He restores (vs. 18-20).

    knowledge doesn’t always equal power
    rooted
    Colossians 1:9-14
    The Point: Simply having knowledge of the will of God isn't enough to access God's power. We must be filled with the wisdom and power, which puts to action that which we already know.
     
    I. God's wisdom energizes understanding (vs. 9-10).
    II. God's power produces endurance and patience (vs. 11-12).
    III. God's deliverance produces restoration and forgiveness (vs. 13-14).

    Finding fruit in a world full of nuts
    rooted
     
    The Point: It can be hard for the Christian to walk by faith in a world that has completely denounced all belief in Christ and His work. We're still called to bear the spiritual fruit in the gospel of Jesus, regardless the cost.
     
    We find three specific things in this passage:
    I. We find truth.
    II. We find power.
    III. We find grace.

    Numbers 21:4-9
     
    The point: We love to say that we have it all together, but that's not what God wants from us. For us, we worship God in moments when we can say, " I don't have it all together."
     
    I. Man's way.
    II. God's way.

    Strike the match
    cityonahill_001
     
    The Point: Say what you want about the media or the increasingly immoral worldviews, it is those INSIDE the church that too often drive away those OUTSIDE the church. We must strike the match of the gospel, light the lamp, and place it on the lamp stand that is anchored in Christ.
     
    I. Our presence is most effective when it is felt, not seen.
    II. Our reward should be given by God Himself, not by men.

    Anger:The Cold, Wet Blanket
    cityonahill_001
    Matthew 5:21-26
     
    The Point: Festering anger in a church saps the Body's ability to effectively do ministry in a community.  Most unchurched/dechurched people will grab a popcorn to watch the fight and forget all about the love and grace of Jesus.
     
    I. Anger hurts you.
    II. Anger hurts others.
    III. Anger doesn't begin as anger.
