Who is in charge? Sadly the answer is often confused in our contemporary society and compromised in Christianity. The only answer to this inevitable and fundamental question is Jesus Christ, the head of the church. His Word demands our utter submission and obedience to Jesus’ authority, not at all to our own desires or comforts.Colossians 1:18
The essence of authority is defined in the person of Jesus Christ, the head of the church and must be displayed in patterns of the church. The scriptures are the authoritative words spoken by Christ. We must pledge to give our utmost attention to His Word and view all things in light of it. The practice of submitting to the authority of Jesus Christ is the ultimate issue of a rising or a falling church.Colossians 1:18
In this message, Alistair Begg uses multiple Scripture references to emphasize the necessity for every Christian to know what they believe and why they believe it. Understanding basic Christian doctrine and applying these principles to every aspect of your life is crucial to discerning false teaching and insuring that correct beliefs are carried forward to future generations.Colossians 1:21-23
Paul’s letter to the Colossians provides a standard for today’s Church to determine the marks of a God-given ministry. Alistair Begg walks us through the pastor’s pattern, purpose, and pleasure in ministry as modeled by Paul. By God’s energy and enabling, a pastor is able to present the Word of God in all of its fullness, encouraging unity and spiritual maturity in the congregation.Colossians 1:24-2:5
In truly Christian families, each member affirms that "Jesus is Lord." Husbands and wives display their love for the Lord Jesus in giving themselves wholeheartedly to the privileges and responsibilities of marriage. Children also display their understanding of Jesus’ Lordship by respecting and obeying their parents. When everyone in the family follows this biblical mandate it makes for healthy churches and stable societies. This study from Colossians 3 will help you communicate the gospel to your family, friends and neighbors by living out the Lordship of Jesus in your home.Colossians 3
The sincere declaration that Jesus is Lord of your life will inevitably change the way you behave. Discover what it means to live a life of obedience with Christ as your focus and foundation. Behaving as a Christian is not about embracing certain regulations, but rather about fully submitting to Christ, and being sanctified and transformed by the Holy Spirit as God conforms the believer to the image of His Son. Only then will you desire, and be enabled, to do that which the Word of God calls you to do.Colossians 3:1-14
Have you ever wondered why Christian marriages continue to suffer when the Church places so much emphasis on the importance of strong marital relationships? Alistair Begg suggests that when our discussions about marriage start in the wrong place, we are bound to veer off course. Marriage begins with God and His glory, and wives who are faithful to the Biblical pattern for marriage are a living testimony to the power of the Gospel.Colossians 3:18
What does it mean to love your wife? The Bible affirms that husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved the Church. As Alistair Begg explains, this is a high standard that is nothing less than a model of the cross of Christ. This love is not harsh; it is sensitive, natural, purposeful, sacrificial, and exclusive. It is a love that enables a wife to flourish in her femininity and grow in her love for Christ.Colossians 3:19
