The Message of Colossians

September 22, 2019 Pastor: Verne Nakasone Series: Colossians

Passage: Colossians 1:1


The Apostle Paul was inspired by God to write this letter to the church
at Colosse while imprisoned in Rome. Colosse was a Roman province
of Asia Minor (modern-day western Turkey).

The church had probably been in existence for around five years and was
likely founded by Ephaphras. This letter promotes an unparalleled portrait
of Christ as first, supreme, everything, and above all!


1A. JESUS first involves life
1B. Given by God
2B. Lived for God
3B. Lived with God

2A. JESUS first involves change
1B. Radical change
2B. Dramatic change
3B. Continual change

3A. JESUS first involves others
1B. As seen in Paul
1C. He wrote to them
2C. He thanked God for them
3C. He prayed for them
4C. He preached to them
5C. He suffered for them
6C. He desired God’s best for them

2B. As seen in every sphere of life
1C. At home
2C. At work
3C. At everyplace


Can people really change? The answer of Colossians is, absolutely yes! The identity and character of JESUS first is the key to change.
