Secure in Christ
26 March 2023 PM – Colossians 1:21-23 – Col23 – Scott Childs
Introduction: Years ago, Colonel Byrd, an American from the state of Virginia, was condemned to death by the Cherokee Indians. In that tribe, there was a chief who had been his friend. That chief said, “This man is my friend; before you can get at him, you must kill me.” The Cherokees let him go free.
The believer is held safely in Christ’s hand. Before the believer could lose his salvation, Christ would have to be overcome; and that is impossible. Source: Encyclopedia of 7700 Illustrations, Paul Lee Tan
Transition: God wants every Christian to have assurance that his sin problem has been resolved by the Saviour’s provision and that he is secure in his unmovable faith. Paul clarifies this for us in our text this evening by addressing the Sinner’s Problem, the Saviours Provision and the Saint’s Proof.
