The Supreme One - Part II

The Supreme One Colossians 1:13-20 Main Point: Everything in our lives must declare Jesus Christ as the Supreme One and proclaim the hope that He alone holds for alienated and lost humanity. Part I 1. He is the Supreme One because of Who He is: A. The Image of the invisible God. (verse 15) Hebrews 1:3 B. Firstborn & Sovereign over all Creation. (verse 15-17) Firstborn – legal phrase = Heir C. The One in Whom all things consist – ‘hold together’. (verse 17) John 1:1-3 D. Head of the body – His Church. verse 18 Ephesians 1:22-23 E. Incarnate Reconciler of all things. (verses 19-20) Ephesians 1:10-Philippians 2:9-10 Part II 2. He is the Supreme One because of What He has done: A. The sacrifice of His physical body unto death. (verse 15) God’s fullness dwelled in bodily form in Jesus Christ. (verse 19 & 2:9) Hebrews 10:8-10 B. His Resurrection from death, conquering its power. (verses 18-22) Firstborn from the dead = He was the first to have a resurrection body C. Presents those ‘in Him’ as holy, without blemish and free from accusation. (verses 22-23) The condition is Faith that continues in Him! (verse 23) Phil 2:5-10 It is this Supreme One Whose Spirit births, forms, grows and lives Christ through us! Do you know this Supreme One?
