Given Fulness in Christ (Colossians 2:6-15)Philip Stewart, 14th February 2016
Part of the Study of Colossians series, preached at a Fordham Sunday Service service
|« Built up in Christ||None||Reality in Christ »|
2:7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
2:9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form,
2:10 and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
2:11 In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ,
2:12 having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.
2:13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,
2:14 having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
2:15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
