When Christ Is All

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: Colossians 3:1-5, 11

As Christians, we don’t just receive knowledge of Jesus Christ; our life is knowing Jesus Christ.

Adrian Rogers says, “You can get to know Jesus better, but you can never know anything better than Jesus. You can go deeper into Jesus, but you can never go beyond Jesus.”

Colossians 3:11 says, “…where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.”

There are three things that will happen when Christ is all, when He is everything to us, when He consumes our entire life.

First, Jesus captivates our ambitions.

Colossians 3:1 says, “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.”

When Christ is our all, our ambition is to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

But when our ambition is to seek righteousness, we must beware of the world’s reasonings. The world will try to distract us with ritual, religion, and regulations so that we will remain captive to those things. We must remember, these are shadows of the substance we have in Christ; Christ is the priority.

Adrian Rogers says, “You’re not going to be any more like Jesus with a list of dos and don’ts. They’re not going to make you one speck like Jesus. It may look good, it may have a show of wisdom and humility; but if you let all of the air out of it, it is will-worship and not God worship.”

Second, Jesus dominates our attention.

Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

There are many things pulling at our minds, at any given moment. But we are instructed to set our minds on Jesus. As our ambitions come to a burning focus, we’ll find that Jesus takes the center stage of our affections.

Finally, when Christ is all, Jesus regulates our actions.

Colossians 3:5 says, “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” If Christ is our life, we are to live like Him, loving the things He loves and hating what He hates, which is sin.

Apply it to your life
Is Christ your life, your everything, your all? Has Jesus captivated your ambition, dominated your attention, and regulated your action?
