Tony FelichTony Felich, November 12, 2006
Part of the Exposition of Colossians series, preached at a Morning Worship service

We must know and understand Christ in order to discern what we see and hear in this world.

I. There are competing worldview philosophies
A. Christian (based on Christ)
B. Humanistic

II. If we claim to have received Christ we must know him well enough to discern what opposes Him (us)
A. In Him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily
B. You have been filled with Him (who is the head…)
C. You have been circumcised/baptized in/with Him (say what?)
D. You were dead, but now have been made alive together with Him
E. You have been forgive ALL your trespassers
F. He has disarmed and triumphed over all

Colossians 2:8-15

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. 11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. (ESV)
