C.R.E.W. Week 4

September 10, 2023 | Pastor Joel Christiansen
Passage: Colossians 3:1-4

Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:1-2

Created by God
Rescued by Christ Jesus
Energized by the Holy Spirit

“When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:4

We wait for Christ’s Return.
1. Live out your death. Celebrate your resurrection.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ…. For you died ….” Colossians 3:4
“having been buried with Christ in baptism and raised with him . . .” Colossians 2:12

“When Christ your life appears.”
“For me to live is Christ!” Philippians 1:21 “It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.” Galatians 2:20

What’s driving me? What’s controlling me? Is it my stuff?
2. Put Off and Put On.
“You have put off your old self with its practices and put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Colossians 3:9,10
“compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, bear with each other and forgive each other. And over all these virtues put on love!” Colossians 3:12-13

Live Out Your Life!
Many of the wounds and aches provoked by our current order aren’t of a sort that can be managed or life-hacked away. They are resolved only by changing one’s life, by becoming a radically different sort of being belonging to a radically different sort of community.” - The Misunderstood Reason Millions of Americans Stopped Going to Church.
