Champion of Love...Colossians 2:13-15

Pin It

Who do you want in your corner? 

Colossians 2:13-15 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
 When I read these verses, I could imagine them being reenacted in a drama.  A narrator, filled with emotion, would read it with an ever increasing intensity in his voice.  Understanding would dawn on the sad faces of passer-byes who hear it, and you would visually see the change, that moment when despair turns to joyful hope!

Despair - You are your own hope of eternal salvation.

  • You are dead in your sins.
  • You are uncircumcised - not one of God's children.
  • You have a list (a long list) of ordinances against you.
  • Your eternal destiny is hell. (Revelation 20:12-15)

Joy - Christ is your hope of eternal salvation.

  • You have been made alive together with Christ.
  • All of your trespasses have been forgiven (Even more...they've been blotted outTaken away! Nailed to His cross.)
  • He openly and victoriously triumphed over our enemies!
When you consider the options, representing your self before Almighty God, or being represented by Christ, who willingly gave Himself for us.

I want my Champion to be Christ!
