The Christian Life Isn’t Just a Walk But a Work

Tonight I’m speaking at The Donelson Fellowship on Guidelines from the Book of Colossians for Doing the Lord’s Work.  When you read through this little letter, you notice that Paul kept bringing up the subject of our labor for Christ.  If you want to study this out, or if you need a teaching or preaching outline, here are the bare bones of what he said: 

1.  We’re to bear fruit in every good work – Colossians 1:9-12


2.  We’re to work with Christ’s energy – Colossians 1:28-29


3.  We’re to work with all our heart as for Him – Colossians 3:17 & 23


4.  We’re to work hard for the sake of others – Colossians 4:12-13


5.  We’re to finish the work assigned to us – Colossians 4:17
