Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Deric concludes the series The Miracles of Christmas with a sermon entitled The Christmas Gospel focussing on Colossians 1:13-22.

Colossians 1:13-22 
ICEBREAKER: If you had to go to prison for a year, what do you imagine would be the hardest part of that experience?
1. Where else in the book of Colossians does Paul talk about the fullness of God dwelling bodily in Christ?
2. In what ways do you think things in heaven were reconciled to God through the cross? (v.20)
3. What is God’s purpose for us in reconciling us to himself as stated in Colossians 1:22?
4. Find three other verses from Ephesians that talk about God’s purpose for us in salvation.
5. Do you think there is any difference between being saved and being reconciled to God?
6. Read Hebrews 4:14-16. In what ways should the reality of God’s incarnation as a human being influence the way you live your life today?
7. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?

The Son of God became man to enable men to become the sons of God.” – C. S. Lewis
