The Achievement of the Cross in Colossians

By

Last weekend I spoke on Jesus’ sixth statement from the cross, “It is finished” (John 19:30). After presenting a bit of word study, I spent the rest of the message focusing on the implications of the finished work of Christ on the cross according to the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Colossian church. For those who are interested, here are the seven implications from Colossians that I laid out.

1. Jesus death on the cross rescues us from danger. (Colossians 1:13-14)
2. Jesus death on the cross enables us to stand in the presence of God. (Colossians 1:22)
3. Jesus death on the cross provides explanation of our purpose. (Colossians 1:28)
4. Jesus death on the cross establishes the foundation of our belief. (Colossians 2:6-9)
5. Jesus death on the cross eliminates our guilt. (Colossians 2:13-15)
6. Jesus death on the cross frees us from religious regulations that we use to impress God and one another. (Colossians 2:16-27)
7. Jesus death on the cross defines our lives. (Colossians 3:1-4)

I want to encourage you to check out these passages from Colossians. Paul provides a wonderful explanation of the importance of the cross.
