Plus Nothing Week 7

476

Published on

From whatever angle we choose to view the age we live in today,
the letter that Paul wrote to the Colossians 2,000 years ago is still
amazingly relevant. This message focuses on our position in Christ and
putting to death the old nature.

  8. 8. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.

  12. 12. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP Don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

  13. 13. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP Dear Steve, I need some help. Every morning I start out with the best in- tentions to change my ways and somehow I think, “today’s gonna be different.” But it never is. Somehow and some way I always fall back into my same old ways of relating to people and my old bad habits.
  14. 14. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP Sometimes I feel like there is a tug-of-war going on inside of me. I really want to do what’s best, but I always end up dis- appointing myself – and God. I have tried everything: prayer, resolutions, and even hypnosis. Nothing seems to work.
  15. 15. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP Why do I keep making the same mis- takes? Why do I do the things I know are bad for me? I feel like crap and I need help getting unstuck. --- An Email to Steve
  16. 16. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP . . . set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. --- Colossians 3:1,2
  17. 17. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP “Preoccupation with eternal realities . . . is to be the pattern of a believer’s life . . . To be preoccupied with heaven is to be preoccupied with the One who reigns there . . . It is to view the things, people and events of this world through His eyes and with an eternal perspective.” --- John MacArthur
  18. 18. Nothing PLUS REMINDING Yourself KEEP Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. --- Romans 12:2

  22. 22. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God
  23. 23. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. --- I Corinthians 2:14
  24. 24. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God Your inheritance can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power . . . --- I Peter 1:4
  25. 25. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. --- John 10:28
  26. 26. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. --- Colossians 3:4
  27. 27. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God The veil which now shrouds your higher life from others, and even partly from yourselves, will then be withdrawn. The world which persecutes, despises, ignores now, will then be blinded with the dazzling glory of the revelation. --- J.B. Lightfoot
  28. 28. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God There is a coming time when God is going to invade this earth with force. But what is the good of saying you are on His side then, when you see the whole natural universe melting away like a dream, and something else – something that never entered your head to conceive – comes crashing in;
  29. 29. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God something so beautiful to some of us, and so terrible to others, that none of us will have any choice left? For this time God will be without disguise; something so over- whelming that it will strike either irresistible love or irresistible horror into every creature. It will be too late then to choose your side. --- C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
  30. 30. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
  31. 31. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. --- Colossians 3:5-9
  32. 32. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God “Use sin as it will use you; spare it not, for it will not spare you; it is your murderer, and the murderer of the world: use it, therefore, as a murderer should be used. Kill it before it kills you; and though it bring you to the grave, as it did Christ Himself, it shall not be able to keep you there.” --- Richard Baxter
  33. 33. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God
  34. 34. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. --- John 13:34,35
  35. 35. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
  36. 36. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
  37. 37. Nothing PLUS OUR LIVES ARE HIDDEN With Christ In God Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. 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. --- Colossians 3:12-17
