How One Word Changes Everything



Kicking off our second night of Summer in the City, Louie Giglio teaches through Colossians 1, illuminating the mystery of Jesus over the world’s allure of mysticism. While we battle with existential questions of who we are and why we’re here, he teaches us that JESUS + NOTHING = EVERYTHING.

Key Takeaway

Jesus + Nothing = Everything. We are not enough, but we are not alone when we have Christ in us.

  1. The goal of mysticism is to make you feel like there are mysteries greater than Jesus. But God is the ultimate mystery.
  2. God has a call on your life. Paul's call was to claim a mystery that no one even knew before him.
  3. The mystery of Jesus—Christ in you, the hope of glory. How do you fully blossom and are woven into the plan of God? It's Christ in you, not Christ and you. This isn't a tag team duo; it's Christ alone.
  4. Our mission is to proclaim Jesus so we can be everything we need to be in Christ.
  5. You are not enough. God is enough, though, and He is in you and me.
  6. If you join His mission, He will always supply His means. We have the power and strength of God, which is all we need.


"The one who is was enough and is enough and will always be enough is living inside of people who in and of themselves are not enough. And the greatest confession I can make is, 'you know what, I am not enough, but praise God, I am not alone.'"
