SERIES: Who Is This Jesus?
MESSAGE: Jesus: The Matchless One, Part 1
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: Colossians 1:15-18

MESSAGE SUMMARY
It is a mistake to think of Jesus as another of many options, competing in the pantheon of man's multiplied pseudo deities. Rather, He is matchless! As Creator of the universe, He entered the universe that He made to bring God up close to His created ones. That leaves us with an ongoing decision—will we submit ourselves to Him, to be directed by Him alone?

OUTLINE

  1. He is matchless as Revealer (v. 15)

    1. In Relationship to the Father

    2. In Relationship to the World

  2. He is Matchless as Creator (vv. 15-16)

    1. The God of Visible Creation

    2. The God of Invisible Creation

    3. The Goal of Creation

  3. He is Matchless as Sustainer (v. 17)

  4. He is Matchless as Director (v. 18)

Pondering the Principles:
  1. What have you been taught about the origins of life? How diligently have you examined the evidence for your views?

  2. What do you suppose it was like for Jesus visiting the planet He formed to see the way people live?
