*Colossians Series #2*
*Faith, Love, Hope & Truth*
*By Bill Denton*
 
*Introduction*
A.  Colossians 1:3-8
3We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which you have for all the saints; 5because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel 6which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as /it has been doing /in you also since the day you heard /of it /and understood the grace of God in truth; 7just as you learned /it /from Epaphras, our beloved fellow bond-servant, who is a faithful servant of Christ on our behalf, 8and he also informed us of your love in the Spirit.
NASB95
 
B.
We've just begun a sermon trip through the book of Colossians
1.
Last week we looked briefly at Paul's greeting to the church
a.  two words stand out:  grace and peace
b.  what powerful words they are
1) one speaks of the free gift of God, that which we do not deserve and
     can never earn; a gift that nothing to do with us at all other than the
     fact that we are the objects of God's loving favor
 
2)  the other speaks of the ultimate result of God's grace, a peace that
     passes all understanding, encompassing all that makes life worth living
     and points toward an eternity of things better than that anything this
     life could ever bring
 
2.
These are words that must get our attention because they are at the heart of the gospel
     of Jesus
a.  we are all in need of grace
b.  we all desperately desire peace
c.  Jesus is the one who embodies them both
