SERMON NOTES

A PICTURE OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE

COLOSSIANS 3:12-17



Living as Those Made Alive in Christ


12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.


HOW DO WE LIVE THIS OUT? (Four guiding questions)

  1. Have you put on the love of Christ? 
  2. What do you need to ask the Lord to help you put on today?
  3. Who are the one-another’s you need to “bear with” in the Word?
  4. Who do you need the peace of Christ to help you forgive?
