JESUS First In Thanksgiving: Our Reminder (Pt. 3)

October 20, 2019 Pastor: Verne Nakasone Series: Colossians

Passage: Colossians 1:7–1:8

OVERVIEW:

There is an overarching emphasis that flows through the entire letter. Thanksgiving is mentioned in every chapter (1:3,12; 2:7; 3:17; 4:2). Thanksgiving is the response of the Christian who sees Jesus in the accurate position of being first.

Previous weeks:

1A. THE RESPONSE OF THANKSGIVING (1:3-4)
2A. THE REASONS FOR THANKSGIVING (1:5-8)
1B. Because of hope, verse 5
2B. Because of fruit, verse 6

NOTES:

3B. Because of Epaphras, verses 7-8

1C. Disciple Maker

2C. Dear Slave

3C. Dependable Servant

The result of Epaphras’ ministry were the blessing and benefit of the church.

  • Mission of the church (v.7)
  • Goal of the church (v.8)
