Introduction:

I. Defining our terms: What is the gospel? Colossians 1:5b–6; 1 Corinthians 15:3–8

II. Gospel growing in the world. Colossians 1:6; Romans 1:16

III. Gospel growing in you. Colossians 1:6b

Questions for reflection:

  • What is the core of the gospel message?
  • Where do you see the power of the gospel at work in the world today?
  • How does the gospel continue to be a source of growth for Christians after their conversion?
  • Consider the individuals God has placed within your sphere of influence and their needs. What are practical ways you might minister to these individuals in the next week?
