Transcript of The Supremacy of Christ

Colossians 1:15-20
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.
The Battles We Face
Battles of our mind and emotions
Battles of our flesh
Battles of our body
Battles of our faith
Battles of our broken world

Good News Bad News
Bad News:

These battles will not cease throughout our lives
Getting our heads around Christ as Head
Christ is the fullness of God

All things seen and unseen were made by him and for him

We are calling all things to recognize this

Living NOW as if in the YET TO COME
King George III
The Supremacy of Christ
Good News:

Victor over all these areas
Christ: Our picture of God
Christ must come to have first place over everything
Mind: take thoughts captive
Emotions: Lament evil, celebrate good
Flesh: Say no to cravings of the flesh
Body: Take care of our earthly tent
Spirit: wrestle with doubt, agree with truth
First place over sin
First place over wounds
May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Col. 1:11-14
Now vs. Not Yet
God made you alive together with him, when he forgave us all our trespasses, erasing the record that stood against us with its legal demands. He set this aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in it.
Col. 2:13-15
