A Greater Life (AM)

Scripture Reading:  John 10:7–10


A.  No matter who you are or where you come from, God has the power to make you greater (Genesis 41:40; Daniel 1:20).

B.  God is able to give us a greater life than any we could imagine.


I.  As Christians, Christ is our very life.

A.  This point is made repeatedly in the New Testament (Colossians 3:3-4; Philippians 1:21; John 1:3–4; 11:25–26; 14:6).

B.  Our new life begins with Christ (Colossians 1:14; 2:10–14).

C.  Our new life is sustained by Christ (Colossians 1:17).

D. Our new life is led by Christ (Colossians 1:18; 3:16–17).

E.  We can even go so far as to say that our new life is lived by Christ (Colossians 3:3; Galatians 2:20).

II.  This new life is entirely different from the old one.

A.  We no longer seek the things that we once did (Colossians 3:1–2; Matthew 6:31–34).

B.  We no longer do the things that we once did (Colossians 3:8–9; Romans 6:12; 1 Peter 4:1-4).

C.  Instead, we put on things which bear the image of Christ (Colossians 3:11-12).

D.  Christ becomes everything to us (Colossians. 3:11–12).

E.  It is Christ alone that we serve (Colossians. 3:18–4:1).


A.  Great men were made great only because God made them so (Genesis 12:1-3; 1 Chronicles 29:10–12).

B.  If you want to achieve greatness in your life, come to Christ.
