In our time, the doctrine of the person and work of God the Holy Spirit sent from Heaven is one of the most neglected teachings in the church.
What is the true power of the Christian life, and the true power of the Christian church? Where does that power originate?
Colossians chapter 3 tells us that we are to "set our minds on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God." Literally, we are to synchronize our thinking with the truth of Heaven.

If ever a man did this, it was John the Baptist. In our last message we began to examine his testimony to the truth of Heaven in the Gospel of John chapter 3. Today, as we conclude this study, each of must ask crucial questions about the state of our own minds before God.
Why must we "seek those things which are above, where Christ is" (Colossians 3:1)? How, specifically, is Christ's heavenly position vital to us for this life and the life to come? Stay tuned as we examine passages in John's Gospel and 1 Corinthians that are essential to our understanding of "the things which are above."
Paul exhorts us to "seek those things which are above, here Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God." As He prepared Isaiah for his great prophetic ministry, God took him into the very throne room of heaven. He showed Isaiah His infinite holiness, Isaiah's total depravity, and the only remedy. Do you as a Christian "set your mind on things above" so that these facts are continually before you?
Earth-bound thinking - a reliance upon the things of this earth rather than on the resources of heaven - is a constant tendency for Christians and churches, and Satan likes nothing better than to trap us in this way.

How is earth-bound thinking affecting the church in our day? What is the sure cure for it? Stay tuned for the answers to those questions, as we continue our series titled "Christ Preeminent in You" from Colossians chapter three.
Christian, is your thinking and living earth-bound, or heaven-bound? That was Paul's challenge to the believers at Colosse as he exhorted them to set their minds "on things above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God."

What are those "things above" and why must they be the focus of our attention? Stay tuned for the answers, as we continue our study titled "Christ Preeminent in You."
In Colossians chapter three, God through the Apostle Paul exhorts us to "seek those things which are above, where Christ is." "Set your mind on things above," he says, "not on things on the earth." How are we to do that? What are to be the keynotes of the preeminence of Christ in the life of the believer? And, is it possible for a believer to be so heavenly-minded that the believer is no earthly good? Stay tuned for the answers to these questions, as we continue our series titled Christ Preeminent in You from the book of Colossians.
The outline of the book of Colossians can be summarized in three words: Christ's preeminence declared, defended, and demonstrated. In chapter one, the Apostle Paul declares the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things - the Gospel, the creation, the Church, Christian ministry, and the world to come. In chapter two, he defends the preeminence of Christ against Satan's triple threats of worldly philosophy, legalism, and man-made doctrines. In chapters three and four, Paul sets forth the preeminence of Christ as it is to be demonstrated in the life and thinking of every believer.

In chapters three and four, we shall see that the Christian's conduct, character, home life, work, witness, and service - every aspect of our living and thinking - must be a daily, practical demonstration of the preeminence of the Lord Jesus Christ to our fellow believers and the watching world. He must be preeminent in all these things, because He must be preeminent in us.
What is the nature of Scripture -- the Book that we hold in our hands? How are we to use the Bible in our daily lives, and in the life of the church?

These are critical questions for the church in all ages, and they are especially critical in the times in which we live. There is a great deal of confusion about these two questions in the church today, and many wrong answers are widely circulated. We need to be sure of the right answer.
