Presenting Everyone Mature in Christ, Part One

From Series: Basics 2019

Colossians 1:28-29  (ID: 3361)

God gives pastors a vital role to play in His transformation of mere followers into committed believers. But what does this role involve? What do pastors actually do? Writing to the Colossians, the apostle Paul provided a succinct, simple answer: “Him we proclaim.” Such a task may seem straightforward. As Alistair Begg notes, though, proclaiming Christ—not ourselves or our treasured doctrinal positions—means warning people about the dangers of sin and teaching and preaching to all with wisdom and attention to their varied needs.


28Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.
