Episodes

Living Awake With Others - Colossians 4 - Episode 018

1/16/2019
More
None of us live as isolated individuals. All of us come into contact with others, and our actions have consequences. Some of them are eternal. Christians are to make disciples of all nations, including their own backyards. Thankfully, we are not called to do it alone, but to encourage and spur one another along in love.

Living Awake - Colossians 4 - Episode 017

1/9/2019
More
It is entirely possible to live life totally unaware of the things that really matter. There are spiritual realities towards which many have never been awoken, or have simply fallen asleep. God exhorts us to, but also give us the tools and the stamina to stay awake; chiefly through prayer.

The Practicality of Being "You with Jesus" - Colossians 3:17-4:1 (Part 2) - Episode 016

1/2/2019
More
True Christianity is spiritually comforting, but it is also supremely practical. True Christianity informs the lives of young and old, parents and children, employers and employees.

The Practicality of Being "You with Jesus" - Colossians 3:17-4:1 (Part 1) - Episode 015

12/26/2018
More
"I'm spiritual, not religious." This increasingly common statement has a vagueness to it. What does it mean to be spiritual? Often spirituality is meant to comfort us, but rarely does it make demands on us. True Christianity is different: it is supremely practical, affecting not just our "spirituality," but also the stuff of life such as marriage, parenting, and work.

Put on Christ - Colossians 3:9-17 - Episode 014

12/19/2018
More
Is living morally just a matter of "fake it until you make it?" Not if you are united with Christ! If you have placed your faith in Christ, who you are is fundamentally different. You, in Christ, are merciful, gentle, honest, and loving. All of life is learning to "put on Christ" and become who you already are.

Duration:00:31:03

Leave Behind Your Old Ways - Episode 013

12/12/2018
More
You've received more than you can possibly imagine if you are united with Christ. And one of the great tragedies is that many who are in Christ are not taking hold of the life they now have in Jesus. You are called to be proactive in our Christian growth, not in order to work our way up to God, but because that is now what you are: you are you with Jesus.

Be True to Your New Self - Colossians 3:1-11 (part 2) - Episode 012

12/5/2018
More
Christian growth means becoming who we are in Christ. That involves changing direction, learning to put behind us the way we used to be—to lose our old habits, which are no longer true to our identity.

Duration:00:29:40

Be True to Your New Self - Colossians 3:1-11 (part 1) - Episode 011

11/28/2018
More
When you become a Christian, you experience an inexpressibly significant shift in who you are. Christian growth means learning how to be true to your new self.

Duration:00:22:56

Moving from Religiosity to Jesus - Colossians 2:11-23 - Episode 010

11/21/2018
More
One of the great dangers Christians face is to fall back into religiosity. We forget what it means that our new identity is "me with Jesus," and seek to move toward God entirely apart from Christ. We do "good things" for the wrong reasons, to our deep spiritual harm.

Duration:00:24:55

The Anti-Religion - Colossians 2:16-23 - Episode 009

11/14/2018
More
Is Christianity a religion? Not if by religion we mean a system of rituals and behaviors that enable us to get close to God. Using that definition, Christianity is the anti-religion. Colossians 2:11-23

You Don't Need More THAN Jesus--You Need More OF Jesus (Part 2) - Episode 008

11/7/2018
More
How do we grow? By daily choosing to receive the gift that we have in Jesus, by seeking more of Jesus. Colossians gives us 3 metaphors for this pursuit: walking in Christ, being rooted in Jesus, and being built up in Jesus. Passage: Colossians 2:6-10

Duration:00:26:27

You Don't Need More THAN Jesus--You Need More OF Jesus (Part 1) - Episode 007

10/31/2018
More
Colossians warns us of a danger we rarely notice. "Philosophies"--ways of thinking--threaten to take us captive. Whether it's "Follow Your Bliss" or modern secularism, or another mindset altogether, these human ways of understanding ourselves and this world can ruin us, because they can pull us away from Christ. When we feel unsettled or incomplete, Colossians tells us that our problem is not that we need more THAN Jesus. It's that we need more OF Jesus. Passage: Colossians 2:6-10

The Dip (Part 2) - Episode 006

10/24/2018
More
When we find ourselves in "the dip" we are uniquely vulnerable to temptation. We can experience physical temptations, disillusionment, and the desire to give up on our faith altogether. The truth the Colossians gives us to battle these is that there is inexpressible glory and joy found in Christ for those who wait on him.

The Dip (Part 1) - Episode 005

10/17/2018
More
Business guru Seth Godin speaks of the difficulty of "the dip." When we set out to accomplish something, if it's anything of significance, we will eventually come to a point in time when the effort we invest does not seem to yield any progress or success. We are faced with a decision. Is this a dead end, where we should turn back? Or is this something we should push through in order to achieve our goal? Is this "the dip?" Christian growth involves an experience of the dip. As we seek to...

Finding the True Center (Part 2) - Episode 004

10/10/2018
More
Our world is tearing apart because we've lost our true center. We're not as important as we think we are, and Christ is far more important than we possibly can imagine. God shows his unimaginable love for us by in Christ renovating this broken world, renovating us, that all things in Christ might become what they were created to be. Passage: Colossians 1:12-23

Duration:00:23:52

Finding the True Center (Part 1) - Episode 003

10/3/2018
More
Our greatest problem, and the central reason we do not grow, has to do with our center. As long as we maintain a sense of entitlement, as long as we see ourselves as the center of our own lives, our souls will be sick. Wholeness comes only as "self" recedes from the center of our lives and Christ, who is the center of the universe, becomes the center of who we are. Passage: Colossians 1:12-23

Getting Unstuck (Part 2)

9/28/2018
More
Why is it that we are stuck? Why do we have a hard time growing? Quite often the reason is fear. We do not grow because we are afraid. The gospel, when rightly understood, is a fear-killer. It proclaims God's grace, which means we don't need to be afraid of our past, and it proclaims the hope that we have from God, which means we don't need to be afraid of our future. And so Paul prays that we would be changed as we are filled with the knowledge of God's gracious and hope-bringing...

Getting Unstuck (Part 1)

9/26/2018
More
We begin our first season by considering a common human predicament: stuckness. Most of us feel a desire to grow in our lives, in our relationships with others, and even in our relationship with God. And yet we can often feel thwarted, incapable of making progress. This frustration raises a question: is true growth actually possible? Paul's letter to the Colossian church answers this decisively. Yes, you can grow--through the gospel. Passage: Colossians 1:1-14
