Living In The Shadows: Colossians Series #15

December 27, 2023

As we begin this chapter, please carefully read the words: “Let no man therefore judge you (condemn you or look down on you) in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17). We are not called to live life in the shadows. A shadow is a dim outline of some object or some reality. Really, a shadow is a promise and a preview. A shadow is a promise that something or someone is coming. It is also a preview because the…

The Conquering Christ of Christmas

December 23, 2023

Will Christ be the center of your celebration this Christmas season? Are you living for the things that Christ died for? The Christian needs to remember that our joy is because of Jesus, our songs because of our Savior, our love because of our Lord, our inheritance is because of His incarnation, and our blessings a result of His birth. The central figure throughout the Scriptures is the conquering Christ. In the Old Testament era, through the Passover, the people looked forward to redemption. In the New Testament era, during the Christmas season, we look backward to the Incarnation. In the Book of Isaiah, the centrality of the conquering Christ is vividly seen for us. It…

The Christ Of Christmas Past, Present & Future: Colossians Series #14

December 13, 2023

The Apostle Paul was a masterful writer, under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. In his writings, he describes how we have now entered into a transition from the Sufficiency of Christ to the deficiency of cults. In Colossians 2:3, we read, “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Then, in verse 4, we read, “And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.” He is moving from Sufficiency to deficiency. The best way for us to be prepared and not deceived by that which is false is to be very well grounded in that which is true. The same Jesus Christ…

We Could Not Have Done It Without You

December 11, 2023

    Dear Visionary Leader, Merry Christmas! When I was 15 years old, my Father had a plant nursery business called, Davis Brothers’ Nursery in Mobile, Alabama. Our nursery had more than 30,000 hanging baskets in greenhouses and thousands of potted plants outside. During my high school years and early college years, when I was not in class, I worked long hours there. On a particular Saturday, our team of about 15 to 20 workers, were potting plants outside and putting the pots on a large cart, that would be pulled by a tractor out to a vast open field and unloaded in a neat row. I was given the…

The Now Summit: Engaging The Greatest Generation Of All

December 7, 2023

Many years ago, a leader said to me, “When we preach we add, but when we teach, we multiply.” I never forgot this important lesson. Sooner or later, if we are planning to speak beyond the grave, we must move from addition to multiplication. The lesson of multiplication. On another occasion, when I was preparing for another long airline trip, a close pastor friend said, “You can either spend the money or spend the man. But, when the man is spent, it is over.” He was not trying to teach me regarding the stewardship of money, but the management of a healthy self. The lesson of management. Nearly forty years…

Christ In You & The Hope Of Glory: Colossians Series #13

December 5, 2023

If I could tell you a secret which would explain how you could be everything you ought to be and everything you want to be, would you be interested? The Apostle Paul is writing here about the Christian life and how it works in our lives. He is writing about the sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ and the ministry that God had given to him. Right in the middle this exposition on the sufficiency of Christ, Paul says, “I have a mystery for you. I have a secret for you.” In Colossians 1:26-27, he uses the word, “mystery” twice. Usually, when we think about mystery, we think in terms…

The Maze of Mysticism: Colossians Series #12

December 1, 2023

The book of Colossians has as its purpose to set forth the absolute sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the first chapter, Paul has set before us the sufficiency of Christ. In the second chapter, he takes all other substitutes for the Lord Jesus Christ and compares them to what we have in Him.  Some years ago, there was a farmer in Madison, Wisconsin, who had built a maze on 400 acres of his cornfield. It was rather sophisticated affair. They used satellites in order to help design the maze and a variety of other technological innovations. They had towers so that when people go through the maze and…

The Heavenly And Honorable Home: Colossians Series #11

November 21, 2023

I always enjoy Mother’s Day because it becomes another opportunity to express appreciation and gratitude to our wonderful, precious mothers. I guess my favorite Mother’s Day joke of all time is about the wealthy man who couldn’t see his mother on Mother’s Day and he decided to do something very special for her. He heard about this talking bird that could whistle “Amazing Grace” and quote the 23rd Psalm. Even though it cost $30,000, he bought it and sent it to his mother. Several days later he called and asked, “Mother, how did you like that bird I sent you?” She said, “Oh, it was delicious, son.” When you read…

Winning At Work: Colossians Series #10

Life doesn’t really work until Christ comes into our life. But when Jesus comes into our life, then we have the essential ingredient to make every area of our life work the way it ought to work. We are looking at this portion of Colossians which shows us how the Christian faith relates to every area of our life. In this chapter, we are carefully studying how the Christian faith relates to your job and how your job is to work in relation to the Christian faith. What are you going to do tomorrow? If you are in the workforce, you will likely begin your day early in the morning. If…

To Them Who Are Without: Colossians Series #9

I am sure you know someone who has had cancer. It will be good news indeed when the medical world finds the solution to this tremendous problem and is able to devise means to deal with the disease of cancer. I wonder if it could be possible for a scientist who has found the cure for cancer and yet took that information and buried it, refusing to share the cure with the world. It would be a crime, wouldn’t it? A person like that would probably be prosecuted. It would be criminal to have good news about a cure for a disease like cancer and not share the cure with…
