Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 8/21/2016

Sunday was the second message in our Living the Christ-Centered Life series through the book of Colossians. The message was called Thank God for the Gospel, taken from Colossians 1:3-8. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Thank God for the work of the gospel in fellow believers (3-6a)
   A. Thank God for other believers when you pray for them.
   B. Faith and love spring from the hope of the gospel.
      – Galatians 5:6; 1 John 3:14; 1 Peter 1:3-5
   C. Note: The gospel comes first. It is the “word of truth.” We must compare all other teachings to the gospel.

II. Thank God for the work of the gospel around the world (6b)
   A. The gospel is bearing fruit and growing all over the world.
      – see parable of the sower (Mark 4:8)
   B. The gospel bears fruit when people hear and understand God’s grace in all its truth.

III. Thank God for those who shared the gospel with you (7-8)
   A. Everyone learns the gospel from someone.
   B. Who will learn the gospel from you?
