As we walk daily in our faith and face issues in our lives, we must always remember that the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, protect, strengthen and call you as His child. Because of the true grace of God and by standing firm in it, we are able to face tomorrow.
In Colossians chapter 4, the apostle Paul encourages the Colossian believers to continue in prayer and to be watchful and thankful (Colossians 4:2, NLT). He also asks for prayer support in his ministry, that God may open doors for the proclamation of the gospel (Colossians 4:3, NLT). Paul urges the believers to conduct themselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of every opportunity to share the message of Christ (Colossians 4:5, NLT). He sends greetings from his fellow workers and encourages the Colossians to receive the letter from Laodicea and to exchange greetings with the believers in Laodicea (Colossians 4:7-16, NLT). In this closing chapter, Paul emphasizes the importance of prayer, evangelism, and unity among believers. As we study Colossians chapter 4, may we be diligent in prayer, bold in sharing the gospel, and supportive of fellow believers, standing firm in Christ's love and grace.
