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.
