A few notes: 
1. All Scriptures are taken from the New International Version
2. The primary source of textual research used is the Smyth and Helwys commentary on Colossians by Nijay Gupta
3. Feel free to customize the message for your audience. Since these sermons are heavy exegetical, there is no need to attribute the content.  

As always, thanks for reading. Feel free to leave a comment below about anything of interest.
