(SERMON) Colossians 1.9-14 "Reformation of character begins with Revival of the soul"

Paul's prayer for the Colossians shows how we must constantly pray for our lives to be radically changed by the Holy Spirit.  We need not only to know God will in our lives and through this be empowered to live lives not only worthy of Jesus but utterly and totally pleasing to Him too.  We are called to live a life of good works and good fruit, growing knowledge and deepening faith, perseverance and endurance, alongside joy and thankfulness.  None of this is possible unless we grasp the most foundational of things - the Gospel of Jesus, the Good News that HE is the one who saves.  Reformation of character begins with Revival of the soul.
