Known - Colossians 1:27-29 - Podcast
In this week's episode of the Generations Church podcast we review the teaching from this past Sunday. We continued our series called "Known," and spent time discussing Colossians 1:27-29. In this episode we focus on how, “We are not just static containers for ideas; we are dynamic creatures direct toward some end.” That end is Christ in us, the hope of glory. We invite Christ into our lives and allow him to shape us when we compare his characteristics and priorities to our own. Doing this will inevitably rub against our everyday culture, but we can have hope and strength that the Holy Spirit is working in our lives everyday.

Listen and discover the hope of glory through Christ inside you.

In this week's episode of the Generations Church podcast we review the teaching from this past Sunday. We continued our series called "Known," and we spent time reading Colossians 1:24-26. In this episode we focus on, "suffering for the sake of others so that Christ is made known and mature believers are grown." We see Paul endure in his pursuit to share who Jesus is even in the midst of persecution. Paul is convinced that this gospel must be proclaimed, received in faith, and implemented in everyday life in order for God's redemptive purposes to be achieved.

In this episode we focus on, "that things make sense only when Christ is kept at the center."

In this episode we focus on, "when we see Jesus fully, we see ourselves rightly." We identified some blurry images in which our world has around who Jesus is and how we should relate him to our everyday lives, and then looked to Paul's writing in Colossians to find who Jesus truly is.

Ever wonder how a board game relates to our everyday pursuit to follow Jesus? We also discuss terms that Paul uses, such as: rescue, domain of darkness, transference, and Kingdom. Ultimately our achievement and abilities cannot earn righteousness, rather it is our dependence in a God who provides that we find salvation.
