Becoming an influential church

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints-- the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel that has come to you. All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth.(Col1:3-6)

1. Make sacrifice joyfully

Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church. (1:24)

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.(John16:33)

Spiritual battle involves sacrifice!

I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness (1:25)

No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.(Matt9:16-17)

New Wine = Spirit of the gospel

Wineskins = Church structure/methodology
