The Normal Christian Life: Life in the Church Pt 2

The Normal Christian Life: Life in the Church

Then the Christian life, is a transformed life. A life of Christ-centered affections. A life where a person dies to the things of this world, and lives by faith, supernaturally, for the world to come. And according to Paul, this is not some -super Christianity- this is not some radical, outlandish, missionary Christianity, reserved for the elite few, this is just normal Christianity, it is the only true Christianity, but it is the result of a supernatural transformation, what Paul calls here in Colossians 3, -being raised to life in Christ-. ----The transformation comes first. Remember, the pattern of Scripture is never to press the duties and character of the Christian life first, but to press the work of God in saving sinners, then the duty of Christian Obedience, flows out of the new life a believer has in Christ. That's is what Paul is teaching the Colossians and us as well. He has spoken on how being raised with Christ transforms the affections, produces the mortification of si...

The Normal Christian Life: Mortification

The Normal Christian Life

Having described the fullness of salvation in Christ, and the freedom in Christ, the apostle now begins to press upon the Colossians, and every believer, the implications of fullness and freedom in Christ. It is not a fullness and freedom to live according to preferences, but to live a life of loving obedience and growing conformity to Christ. That is, it is not fullness and freedom to live how you want, but how you ought. --Because just as the false teachers were wrong about Christ and salvation, they were wrong about how to live. As we heard last week. Beginning here in chapter 3, Paul begins describing the normal Christian life, the implications that the gospel brings to bear on every aspect of life- internally, externally, relationally, in the church, in the family, and even at work. And while the culture at large, or even the so call -evangelicalism- of our day may describe it as fanatical or radical, it really is just normal biblical Christianity.--Paul begins by characterizin...

Men of Prayer - Week 5 - The Pattern of Prayer (1)

Complete In Christ

The word -filled- here means complete. Paul is telling these believers, -You are complete in Christ. Christ is all in all, and you are complete in Him. In Christ you have all that you need. Christ has promised, purchased, and provided everything the believer needs, and everything the sanctified soul longs for. Complete in Christ, that is the identity and standing of a true believer. --Axiom- So in this passage, Paul begins to unfold this completeness in Christ to say to the Colossians, and to us as well, -You do not need to supplement Christ to create a certain reality, you need to realize the reality of fullness in Christ, and live from that reality-. Paul paints the picture of complete salvation in Christ by reminding the believer that in Christ they have died to sin, been made alive to God, been forgiven and pardoned, and have victory over the Evil one.
