Colossians, Chapter One, Lesson Six

COMPLETE IN CHRIST   Colossians 1:24-29             Print this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** In our study together last week, we were exposed to the desire of the Lord toward those of us who belong to Him through faith. What does Jesus desire to see in our daily conduct, what does He want us to be?

Both "Holy and Blameless" cf. Colossians 1:22

As we strive to put into practice all that we learn from the Word of God, this one reality carries the most impact on our character and conduct if we will submit our hearts to the Lord's will for our lives.

MOTIVATE

** Living in the pursuit of being both "Holy and Blameless" is what prepares our hearts for Christian ministry. But what does Christian ministry look like and what is its ultimate goal? For the answers, please join me now in Colossians 1:24-29 as Paul shows us the need for all Christians to be "Complete in Christ".

Read passage (V.24-27) (V.28-29)

Opening Prayer

Complete in Christ

INVESTIGATE

V.24 ** The passage before us is very unique in that it will give us the goal of all Christian ministry, while at the same time show us the very heart of the apostle Paul and his high view of ministry in the name of the Lord. As we study it together we are going to learn eight elements of ministry and hopefully try to apply them to our lives.

They are:

1. The Source 2. The Spirit 3. The Suffering 4. The Scope
5. The Subject 6. The Style 7. The Sum 8. The Strength
