A New Assurance In Christ by Rick Ferguson


HOW TO LIVE LIFE TO ITS FULLEST
A STUDY IN COLOSSIANS

SERMON #8 A NEW ASSURANCE IN CHRIST
COLOSSIANS 2:6-8


Question: Have you ever wondered how people who don't have the
Lord
possibly survive? - Boy, I do!

And the more I learn about Jesus and: all He has done for me,
all He does through me,
the more I realize that He is my life. Without Him life would
be so totally
meaningless, empty and hollow. People who do not live in right
relationship with Jesus are not really living at all ... they
are merely
existing. Jesus Christ really does make our life complete.

and
Jesus alone:
*He is totally adequate
*He is totally able
*He is totally sufficient

It may sound simplistic, but the fact is, in order to live life
to its fullest
you need Jesus plus nothing.

Col. 2:9-10 "For in Christ all the fullness of deity lives in
bodily form (10)
And you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over

One of the reasons Christ brings fullness and completeness to
our lives
is because He gives us "A New Assurance" about life and
eternity. That
assurance comes from our position "In Him."

Col. 2:6-8 together:

Col 2:6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live in
him,
Col 2:7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as
you were
taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Col 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow
and deceptive
philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic
principles
of this world rather than on Christ.

The 2 greatest truths of the Christian life have to be these 2
basic
fundamental facts:
1.Jesus Christ is in me.
2.I am in Jesus Christ.

Now I don't know about you, but I have a hard time comprehending

either one of these basic fundamental facts.
1.It is hard to ...
