Colossians 2:6-15

Sermon Theme: The supremacy of Christ is essential to the sufficiency of Christ, His finished work on the cross, where Jesus cancels our debt of sin. Trying to establish our own righteousness according to human wisdom is futile. Instead, believers should look to Jesus, whose death, burial, and resurrection is sufficient for all things related to life and godliness!
