Why Jesus?



Why Jesus?


Colossians 1:15-23, Pastor Joe Friman

Message delivered November 15th, 2015 during the morning services.



There are thousands of religious systems that claim to have a way to God.  Do this or do that and you can gain access to God, they promise.  In a society where all these systems are competing, the question about "Why Jesus?" is a prevalent and pertinent question.  In today's Scripture, we'll see two reasons for the exclusivity and superiority of Jesus.

  1. Because of WHO HE IS. (vs. 15-19)
    • Jesus is GOD.
    • Jesus is CREATOR.
    • Jesus is SUSTAINER.
    • Jesus is LORD.
  2. Because of WHAT HE HAS DONE. (vs. 20-23)
    • He has taken SINNERS...
    • ...and RECONCILED them...
    • ...and has COMMISSIONED them.
