Message

JESUS, LIKE NO OTHER
His Unrivaled Authority
Colossians 1:15-20

Introduction: There is no authority ever created that can rival the authority of Jesus. He exists beyond the created and is over the church—He is God. His authority also reaches beyond death.

Key Bible Passages Concerning Jesus: 

Luke 1:26-35                He was Super-naturally Born 
John 1:1-18, 29-34       He is God in Flesh
Philippians 2:1-11         He is Ruler & Judge of the Universe
Hebrews 1-2                 He is Greater than All
Colossians 1-2              He is Lord & Savior

Jesus Above Creation

  • The Image—He is the Exact Representation of God (Colossians 1:15a) (Hebrews 1:1-3a)
  • The Firstborn—He is Superior in Position (Colossians 1:15b)
  • The Creator—He Gives Life Meaning (Colossians 1:16) (Psalm 139:15)
  • The Sustainer—He Holds Everything Together (Colossians 1:17) (2 Peter 3:10)

Jesus Over The Church

  • He is the Head of the Church (Colossians 1:18a)
  • He is the Creator of the Church (Colossians 1:18b)
  • He is the Authority over the Church (Colossians 1:18c)

Jesus On The Cross

  • The Plan He Laid—Reconciliation (Colossians 1:19-20a)
    (from Enemy to Friend)
  • The Peace He Made—Restoration (Colossians 1:20b)
    (from Object of Wrath to Object of Grace)
  • The Price He Paid—Redemption (Colossians 1:20c)
    (from His Sacrifice to Our Deliverance)

Conclusion: It is important that one sees Jesus as the Bible reveals Him—as One who has authority over the created, the church, and death. And not as many, who wish to see Him for their own conveniences. One’s eternity depends on it. (Acts 4:12)
