Message

THE SUPREMACY OF CHRIST
“Jesus Delivers” (Part 2)
Colossians 1:20-23 

Introduction: When you come to trust Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord you have in Him everything necessary to be restored to Him and have eternal life in Heaven. 

Descriptions of Jesus’ Salvation: 

Substitution: He died in your place
  --He was made sin for you (2 Corinthians 5:21)
  --He took on your sin in His body on the cross (1 Peter 2:24)
  --He was tortured for your sin (Isaiah 53:4-6)

Justification: His death made you right with God (Romans 4:25)

Adoption: His death made you part of God’s family (Ephesians 1:5)

Redemption: His death purchased your salvation with His blood (1 Peter 1:18-19)

Propitiation: His death satisfied God’s wrath against you (1 John 4:10)

Forgiveness: His death allowed you to be forgiven by a Holy God (Ephesians 1:7)

Reconciliation: His death made peace with God possible for you (Romans 5:10)
(The cross is central to reconciliation--it means the alienated is made intimate)

The Price Jesus Paid

He Suffered with Real Blood (Colossians 1:20b) (Revelation 1:5)
He Suffered in a Real Body (1:21b-22a) (1 Peter 2:24)

The Peace Jesus Made

Universal Peace (Colossians 1:20a) (Romans 8:19-22)
  --through subjection (Philippians 2:9-10)
  --through conversion
Personal Peace (Colossians 1:21)
  --in attitude
  --in action

The Purpose Jesus Displayed (Colossians 1:22b)

To Introduce “holy”
  --set apart from sin to God
To Introduce “blameless”
  --without spot
To Introduce “above reproach”
  --no accusation

The Prints Jesus Laid (Colossians 1:23)

Faith that is “grounded”
  --has a love for God
Faith that is “steadfast”
  --has a hatred for sin
Faith that is “not moved away from the hope”
  --has a desire for obedience (Ephesians 4:14-15)

Application: Are you reconciled to God? Is there evidence that you have been reconciled? Are you in the business of reconciliation?
