    'Sharing the Journey' by Pastor Vern

    September 29, 2017

    Colossians 2: 1-10   

    Sharing life in the body of Christ is pretty amazing and special and should not only be noted but enjoyed.

    So many people live in isolation, shielded or hidden from the world.  The idea of support or participation is not part of the equation. We were created to be part of community and church at its best works in harmony with the fact ‘we need each other’.

     1 Adventure – vrs 2-3         

    • Building relationships

    o   Encouraged in heart – a place to belong

    o   United in love – others to share life and the journey with

    o   Riches in understanding – discover and share the truths of God

    • Growing in faith

    o   Treasure – important and worth digging for

    o   Wisdom – truth beyond my limited view

    o   Knowledge – divine truth that orders the universe

    o   Sharing with others who are in the adventure

     2 Well-being - vrs 6-7    

    • Alive in Christ – forgiven and living with hope
    • Rooted – sense of health and flowing with life
    • Built up in Christ – stability and a growing awareness of solid foundation
    • Strengthened in the faith – allowing God to work and learning to depend on Him
    • Strengthened for the journey – everyday knowing we are given strength for the task
    • Overflowing with thankfulness – growing appreciation for all that God is doing for us

     3 Focus – vrs 9-10        

    • Christ is the focus
    • Fullness – all the divine presence and resources of God are available in Him
    • We are filled with that fullness
    • The presence of the Holy Spirit
    • Christ is the head over every power
    • Christ has authority over all things

     Application

    • Our spiritual life is an adventure that we are on together
    • Our spiritual life is designed to give us health and strength for the journey
    • Our spiritual life gives us the goal to focus on – ‘Fix our eyes on Jesus’ Heb 12:2
