Colossians Study: Lord Of All

[Colossians 1:15-20]

LORD is most used NT term to identify Jesus (over 600 times)

Savior only used about 25 times in NT

  • Jesus is Lord (Kurios Iesous) – Creedal Affirmation / Confession of faith
  • Jesus is a Lord – many of the Colossians accepted Jesus as a Lord—but it’s different from Him being the They gave Him prominence rather than preeminence.
  • Jesus is my Lord – personal
  • Jesus is Lord of Creation (v. 15-17) – “Everything was created by Him… everything was made for Him.”
  • Jesus is Lord of Redemption (v. 18, 20) – He’s the 1st to be raised from death, His blood made a way for all beings to be brought back to God.
  • Jesus is Lord of All “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11 NIV)

 

  • You Will Be Saved
    1. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9 NLT)
  • You Will Aim to Obey & Serve
    1. “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” (Luke 6:46 ESV)
    2. “Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” (Isaiah 6:8b)
  • God Is Pleased
    1. God is pleased when Jesus Christ is honored and given preeminence (John 5:23-24)

Not everyone who calls Jesus Lord will enter the Kingdom (see Matt 7:21-23)
