Jesus is Enough

We have three G’s we concentrate on at Imprint Church in Woodinville: Gospel, Gratitude, and Generosity. This sermon from 10/06/13 focused on the Gospel part of that vision. The gospel speaks to the mission, culture, and message of the church as a whole, and the gospel should inform how we go forward as a church in this next generation and pass it on to the next generation. It’s why the church will survive and thrive in the days to come. If our world is changing, and Christianity has evolved in some good (and not so good) ways, we always have a Word of God that adapts to any and every situation. “The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 ESV) The sermon concluded with an exhortation from Dr. John Piper’s book, What Jesus Demands From The Wold Today. “The main battle in your life is the battle to keep seeing Jesus as the supreme treasure of your life.” This should be our goal. Key Lessons from this Sermon Here are the key lessons that were taught in this sermon Colossians 1:13-23 along with the time in the recording where you can learn more about that point. Christianity is a living faith. To remain faithful to the gospel, we must regularly evaluate our understanding of it. (6:55) There are strengths and weaknesses in both Traditional Christianity (20:13) and Contemporary Christianity (23:00) Christ is Sufficient, which can be thought of as Man-Sin-Christ-Response (32:10) Christ is Supreme, which can be thought of as Creation-Fall-Redemption-New Creation (38:00)

Scripture References: Colossians 1:1-29
