The Main Thing “We Are Family”

 The Main Thing  

“We Are Family” 

Colossians 3:18-4:1 CSB

Key Truth: “Jesus is the beginningmiddle, and end of life.” 

Main Question: How do we leverage our families to be witnesses for Jesus in the world?

1.    Husbands and Wives (vs. 18-19) 

Three Biblical Assumptions about Marriage:

a.    Marriage is ordained by God.

b.    Since marriage is ordained by God, its parameters are determined by Him.

c.    Because marriage is ordained and defined by God, there are certain roles each spouse brings to the marriage and family relationship.

2.    Parents and Children (vs. 20-21)

3.    Masters and Slaves (vs. 22-4:1)

After the Message: Read Colossians 3:18-4:1 

How does your family serve as a witness for Christ in the world? What needs to change in your marriage, parenting, or external relationships for you to be more faithful to live out the “new self” you have received in Christ? What is one thing you can do this week to be obedient to Jesus in these areas?
