Sermon Notes and Nuggets

  • What Paul writes falls into 2 categories:
    • What God did through Christ.
    • What we as Christians should do in light of what God did through Christ.
  • Meet (in this context) = qualified.
  • Partake(r) = Share/Sharer — in the inheritance of the saints in light.
  • None of us were qualified, but God qualified us.
  • We have redemption through the blood of Christ.
    • We have been translated/transferred into the kingdom of light (God’s kingdom); delivered from the power of darkness.
  • Before we received or obtained new life through Christ, we were dead in our sins.
    • We cannot be alive outside or apart from Christ.
  • We are forgiven of our trespasses.
    • Trespass = sinning by overstepping a boundary.
  • Blotted out = wiped away; wiped out.
  • Spoiled (in the context of verse 15 of Colossians 2) = disarmed (stripped of power).
    • He made a spectacle of principalities and powers.
