Throwback Sunday

 

Presented by Pastor Randy Capote

Fifteen years ago, almost to the day, I delivered a message on my first Sunday as your Pastor from Colossians 1:13-18. I chose that passage because I wanted to establish from the very beginning who this church belonged to, and it is not me! It has never been me and will never be me. Join me as we discuss why there is one, and only one person who will ever hold the place of supreme honor in this church, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ.

(13) For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, (14) in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (15) He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. (16) For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. (17) He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. (18) He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.
— Colossians 1:13-18 (NASB)
