Mystery Revealed

October 16, 2022 Speaker: Jason Williams Series: Colossians // Christ Above All

Topic: Biblical Passage: Colossians 1:24– 2:5

Colossians 1:24-29
24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, 26 the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. 27 To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 29 For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.


Mystery #1: We can rejoice in suffering on behalf of others

 
Mystery #2: We can rejoice in suffering on behalf of Christ


Mystery #3 The Gentiles have an equal share in the riches of the Glory of God
• Christ in you, the hope of glory


EVERYONE is meant to Belong to HIM

• Warning Everyone
• Teaching Everyone
• Present Everyone


God’s Purpose: That Everyone (Jew & Gentile) would be brought into the family of God 

Paul’s Purpose: That Every child of the King would Grow and become Mature


Colossians 2:1-5
For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. 5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.


No Mystery… A Clear Purpose

• Encouraged in Heart
• United in Love
• Mature
