Reading along with us in Colossians? Here’s today’s reading:

Colossians 1 (ESV)

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father.

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth, just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf and has made known to us your love in the Spirit....Continue Reading

  1. 15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together

    19For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.❤️

  2. There is so much here, what a great chapter. Amazing that the gospel is still bearing fruit all over the world. Oh how I pray it would bear it in our community and in our lives. And what a great prayer Paul prays here. It’s all about Spiritual power and bearing fruit and growing in their knowledge of God. How unlike the prayers I most often pray and how unlike the prayers I hear requested (by myself as well!)

    And what a great statement of praise to Jesus. He deserves the highest praise for all He is, does and has done. He is before all things. How often is that reflected in my life? We certainly do not want to remain alienated from Him. And surrender ourselves to His gospel as much as we can. Paul is great example of a life sold out to spread the good news of Jesus around the world.
