Our Foundation in Christ

Our Foundation is Christ! Colossians 3:15-17 Main Point: We must make as the foundation of our lives, the Peace, Word, and Name of Christ. Verse 3 – our ‘life is now hidden with Christ in God…’ 1. The Peace of Christ is to rule in our lives and in His Body. (verse 15) ‘Peace’ = Tranquility; harmony with others; fearing nothing because of assurance of salvation in Christ. ‘Rule’ = Direct, control, govern. 2. The Word of Christ is to Dwell in us richly so that we teach and admonish one another. (verse 16) ‘Word of Christ’ = Especially the words of Jesus! Hebrews 4:12 – ‘For the Word of God is living and active…’ ‘Dwell’ = inhabit & influence. 3. Everything we say and do is to be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus. (verse 17) ‘Name’ = The authority, will, character of the person (Christ). In living this way – we are giving thanks to God thru Christ!
