A sermon by Albertus C. Van Raalte on Colossians 3.1, was written on twelve small pages in Van Raalte's very small handwriting as is so typical of his manuscripts. Van Raalte labeled it a "Preparatory Sermon." In contrast to many of his sermons which mentioned where he has preached the sermon, there is no indication on this manuscript that he preached it elsewhere. It can be assumed that this was a fresh sermon for his Holland congregation, First Reformed Church, on this date.
