Pastor Wes Denham

He begins with Colossians 3:1-4, where Paul instructs believers to seek the things above, setting their minds on Christ who is seated at the right hand of God. Pastor Wes emphasizes the transformative power of Christ’s resurrection, which enables believers to live differently from the world. He outlines the necessity of putting to death earthly sins such as fornication, uncleanness, and covetousness (Colossians 3:5-9), and putting on the new self, characterized by virtues like compassion, kindness, humility, and patience (Colossians 3:12-14). Pastor Wes explains that these virtues foster unity and peace within the body of Christ. He concludes by encouraging the congregation to let the peace of Christ rule in their hearts and to be thankful, allowing the word of Christ to dwell richly within them (Colossians 3:15-17).
