Colossians 5 • The Preeminence of Christ in His Church Colossians 1:18-23
Christ is the head of the church because He died for the elect of God. He has the preeminence in the local church because His resurrection is the power that will raise His people from the dead and fuels their faith to be able to believe the gospel.
This message was preached on April 10, 2022.

Elder Bryce Lowrance “The Preeminence of Christ in Creation” • Colossians 1:15-17 Jesus Christ is the Creator God Who made and sustains all things by the word of His power. Not only did He make all things, He made all things for Himself. Therefore, Jesus deserves all the praise of every man.

Elder Bryce Lowrance “Paul’s Prayer for the Colossians” • Colossians 1:9-14 Paul prays for three things for these brethren and they all relate to the mind. He prays for their knowledge of God to increase, their walk to be led by wisdom, and their minds to be knit together with the mind of Chris. He prays this so that they would would glorify God even more in their daily walk. The more we know about Who God is and how much He has blessed us by His grace, the more we are moved to love out of thankfulness.

Elder Bryce Lowrance “Thanksgiving” • Colossians 1:3-8 Upon hearing of the behavior of the brethren at the church in Colossae from Epaphras, the Apostle Paul thanks God for their faith in Jesus Christ which is exhibited in their love for their fellow saints of God. Paul further thanks God for the hope of eternal joy that is promised to God’s children, and is secure in the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Brother Jonah Lowrance “Brotherly Meekness” • Galatians 6;1-5 Church members have the responsibility of not only praying for one another but helping one another especially when someone has gone astray. Church discipline is church love because we are to seek to restore God’s children to full fellowship with the saints. This can only be done with a true spirit of meekness.

Elder Bryce Lowrance “Brethren” • Colossians 1:1-2 In this introductory message to Paul’s Epistle to the Colossians, Elder Bryce shows how Paul introduces the main theme of his letter by using the word “brother” and “brethren” in the opening verses. The heresies at Colossae have only one solution. That solution is giving all glory to God for salvation and living in thankfulness by loving our brothers and sisters in Christ.

In Jesus Is Life • John 1:4 Mount Paran was blessed to have Elder John Burkett from Green Pastures Primitive Baptist Church visiting with us this Sunday. Elder John preached how Jesus is the source of natural life, the source and cause of the resurrection, and the cause of regeneration. In each case of giving life, God acts alone by His sovereign will and power.

Stand Fast in Liberty • Galatians 5 – Brother Jonah Lowrance The Apostle Paul now makes practical application of what he has been teaching the churches in Galatia. He shows them and us that faith manifests itself in two way – love and hope. We are not be legalistic nor antinomian in our service to the Lord. We are to live in liberty by living for the benefit of others.
Grace Is Enough • Titus 3:1-7 – Elder Bryce Lowrance Elder Bryce continues with the same theme of “faith working by love” as he teaches about Paul’s main point of his letter to Titus. The doctrine of grace is sufficient teaching and motivation for good works. Any other reason for good works in without true faith and is unprofitable for the child of God.

Psalm 46 – Elder Bryce Lowrance Our world is filled with dangers and uncertainties, and Satan seeks to rob our minds of hope and joy. Psalm 46 reminds us that God is greater than all the fears and powers that seem to bear down us in our lives. in this song of God’s power, David calls on us to run the our true Refuge, Jesus Christ. And when we are there, we are to be still and know that He is God and will keep us from all harm.

Galatians 4:21-31 • Paul’s Allegory – Brother Jonah Lowrance 
The true story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar is an allegory that teaches how the the church and the people of God should view the law. Any use of the law to seek justification is like Sarah giving Hagar to Abraham. This is not God’s chosen way. The law is to teach us about Jesus Christ – the only source of true and free justification and salvation.
Romans 8:1-3 • 2 Laws – Elder Bryce Lowrance Following up on the conclusions drawn by Brother Jonah, Elder Bryce shows that there are really only two laws regarding our salvation. One is the law of sin and death. The other is the law of the Spirit of life. If any aspect of a system of salvation gives even the smallest possibilities of eternal damnation it is a “law of sin and death.” True grace teaches that the finished work of Christ is sufficient for all the elect of God, and it leaves nothing in the hands of men. In Christ, we have no condemnation!

Psalm 5 • Pray without Ceasing – February 6, 2022 Elder Bryce Lowrance 
In this Psalm, David shows us the striking differences in the way God views His elect and the wicked. God’s chosen ones have access by His abundant mercy to approach the throne of grace for help in time of need. The wicked continually seek to fulfill their own desires, and God will ultimately bring them to destruction. The righteous saints of God are redeemed freely by the blood Jesus Christ and therefore have direct access to the Father and can expect help when they ask in faith.
