How To Live As Reflections Of Christ

Tagged With: , / Hungering For God

Today, sitting here: we are gathered as the Body of Christ. So the first truth for us to consider today is this:

We are the Body of Christ

The Body of Christ: that is what we are called, and that is what we are by God’s grace to be.

We are to represent Christ alive in us, as we are living, and going through life in the world. That is what it means that our body is the temple of God. He lives is us; and He wants to radiate out of us in our words, attitudes, and actions.

The Power of Sanctified Living

Tagged With: / Gift of Salvation

As we open to Colossians 3 we begin with four verses that declare the wonder of our salvation.

Baptism is a look back at what Christ did to us.

Communion is a look back at what Christ did for us on the Cross.

Follow along as we read the first four verses:

Colossians 3:1-4 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
