I. EXORDIUM:

Are you a slave of CHRIST?

Yes.

II. AUDIENCE PROFILE:

Believers/unbelievers

III. OBJECTIVES:

To show that we need to be a slave of CHRIST not of men for the LORD JESUS CHRIST is Both the Rewarder and the Reward.

IV. TEXT:

Colossians 3:24 (Amplified Bible)

Knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah).

V. THESIS:

Praise, worship, glorify, adore, bless, honor, acknowledge and thank You very much LORD JESUS for You are my LORD and MASTER and I am Your insignificant slave and my Reward is in You.

VI. TITLE:

The LORD JESUS is my Rewarder and we are serving Him

VII. EXPLICATION: [Source: Thompson Chain - Bible Book Outlines]

A. Author: Apostle Paul

B. Date written: From A.D. 60 to A.D. 64

C. Purpose:

1. General, a message of good will to exhort and edify believers.

2. Special, to counteract doctrinal errors growing out of the mixture of Judaistic teaching combined with the vagaries of oriental and philosophic speculation. These heresies tended to obscure the divine glory of Christ.

D. To whom written: Church in Colosse

E. Main Themes:

The epistle resembles Ephesians, both in thought and language, yet has a distinct message of its own. In Ephesians Paul dwells on the thought of the church as the body of Christ, while in Colossians he emphasizes Christ as the head of the church. The warning against trusting in worldly wisdom that appears in 1 Corinthians reappears in Colossians.—Thompson Chain - Bible Book Outlines

F. Key words: CHRIST is the HEAD of all

Colossians 2:10 (Amplified Bible)

And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].

G. Key verses:

Colossians 2:9-10 (Amplified Bible)

For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].

And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].

VIII. MAIN BODY:

Colossians 3:24 (Amplified Bible)

Knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah).

Colossians 3:24 (New King James Version)

knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

A. Knowing that the LORD JESUS CHRIST is the Rewarder of my inheritance and not men.

"Knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward."

Colossians 2:18 (Amplified Bible)

Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize, insisting on self-abasement and worship of angels, taking his stand on visions [he claims] he has seen, vainly puffed up by his sensuous notions and inflated by his unspiritual thoughts and fleshly conceit,

Genesis 15:1 (Amplified Bible)

AFTER THESE things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram, I am your Shield, your abundant compensation, and your reward shall be exceedingly great.

Ruth 2:12 (Amplified Bible)

The Lord recompense you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under Whose wings you have come to take refuge!

Proverbs 11:18 (Amplified Bible)

The wicked man earns deceitful wages, but he who sows righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) shall have a sure reward [permanent and satisfying].

Matthew 5:12 (Amplified Bible)

Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you.

All I receive here on earth are curses, and insults, no one credits me at all. I wanted to remain it that way for I suffer persecution, shame, disgrace, insults and blasphemies as well, they laughed at me when I preached. I wanted it that way since I have to answer to the LORD JESUS for their soul that in that day I have not reserved anything for me, but I have shared it to everyone, even to those who laughed at me that they needed the LORD JESUS CHRIST to be saved, just like anyone else. I continue to be insignificant in the eyes of men but not to the eyes of GOD for my Rewarder is the LORD JESUS CHRIST and not men.
