It has been a while so here it is, CONTEXT, Colossians 1:24–29 is a sort of summarization of Paul’s ministry work. He says he, rejoices in suffering for them, He is a minister by God’s appointment, called to preach the mystery of the Gospel to the Gentiles, warning everyone with wisdom in order that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus, often doing so to the pint of exhaustion but depending solely upon the power of God to accomplish all.
Oh that men would stand in the pulpit today and preach like Paul, Christ Alone through Grace Alone. We need not facing surroundings bright lights, loud music to get the “right experience” we need the WORD OF GOD preached in an uncompromising manner.
Colossians — #5627 — Colossians 1:28
What makes false teachers dangerous? It is the fact that they turn people away from Christ Jesus. In this sermon from Colossians 1:28, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones warned us on the dangers of false teachers and the need for the true Gospel. There were those in the early Church who taught dangerous things, such as the need for other beings to stand as mediators between men and God. But the apostle Paul denounces them and proclaims the truth that Christ alone can save from sin. The Gospel is found in Christ’s ability to save sinners, and He is able to save to the fullest. Those who have trusted in Jesus do not need any other Savior, nor do they need another priest to lead them to God. What is the Gospel message that false teachers deny? It is the message that all men are fallen and in sin. Because of this, they are under the judgment of God. But Christ died for sinners in order that all who believe in Him are saved from the righteous judgment of God. There is no other message of salvation; Jesus is the only way to God. Do you believe this message of salvation in Jesus Christ? As Dr. Lloyd-Jones explains, there is no more important message than the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
