Dying to Live

Jesus at the Center Series Gfx_App Wide
We continued our series, “Jesus at the Center,” this past weekend at Eastbrook by looking at a somewhat obscure passage found in Colossians 2:16-23. Here, Paul and Timothy push back against some wrong ideas that will lead the early believers in Colossae astray from the truth found in Christ. We face similar struggles today, so I spent some time with a whiteboard talking about living withing God’s circle of truth.

You can watch the message here, following along with the outline below. You can also follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

Don’t Let Anyone Judge You (Colossians 2:16-17)

Rules based in religious observance

Shadows of realities found in Christ


Don’t Let Anyone Disqualify You (Colossians 2:18-19)

False humility and worship of angels

Lost connections to body of Christ


Die to Live (Colossians 2:20-23)

Real death in Christ

Death to perishing realities and rules

Alive to what brings life
