TBW 2011 - Perfection: The Goal of God’s Plan - Presenting Perfect - Colossians 1:15-29

October 30th, 2011

A talk by Joe Wiltshire at St Tom’s Big Weekend 2011 on the topic of 'Perfection: The Goal of God's Plan'. This talk is entitled 'Presenting Perfect' (Colossians 1:15-29) and is the last in the four-talk series.

Talk outline:

  • Where have we come so far?
  • The 'M' word
  • Counting the cost
  • God's plan is our work
  • Implications
    1. Always be looking outside the present group
    2. Ministry requires both personal and corporate sacrifice
    3. There is no magic bullet
    4. False teachers are the ones who look for ease and popularity
    5. Not all of us are teachers
    6. For those that are teachers, teach the negative as well as the positive
    7. For anyone to be saved and grow as a Christian, they have to hear the word of the Gospel
    8. We've got to have the right expectations:
      • The world to be against you
      • That God will work
    9. Give up your life for the sake of the glory of God, for the sake of Jesus, for the sake of others and for your own sake
