Precious, Jesus (Colossians 1:15-19)Lucas Boring, August 13, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
It's a proven fact the a man named Jesus existed. But if you start to ask if Jesus the Christ existed it begins a controversy. Jesus was in the beginning of time. Jesus is to be pre-emanant. When we talk we should be lifting up Christ whether by song, teaching, preaching or in our life. In order to show how loved Jesus is, we must love Him first. The most important thing about being saved is that we will be worshipping Jesus as He fully deserves. What makes people want to be saved? Jesus allows us to use situations to witness to others but how can you witness if you don't love Jesus? You can show up to church, sing in church, talk about Jesus but not have any true care about it. The biggest need for our community, church and lost need is lifting up Christ. It's easy to get discouraged. The only goal or focus should be to lift up Christ, nothing else matters. We can't judge our success by numbers. The more time you spend with Christ studying, talking, walking and being with Him, the more precious He will become to you.
