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

Colossians 4 (ESV)

Masters, treat your bondservants justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.

Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

Tychicus will tell you all about my activities.

  1. I am always struck by the instruction on evangelism in this chapter, particularly what Paul asks prayer for: an open door for the message and that the message would be clear. May our prayer be the same and our availability to share the gospel as complete as Paul’s. May we also be wise in the way we act toward outsiders and make the most of every opportunity as well as watch the way we talk.

    It is also neat to see all the people who are close to Paul and assist him on his mission. I also had never noticed Paul’s mention here of a letter they are to read that was sent to Laodicea. It is obvious that it didn’t make it into the Bible which just reinforces the intentional process the early church went through to distinguish which letters of Paull were divinely inspired. Colossians was and this other letter wasn’t. See it wasn’t assumed just because it was fromm Paul that it was worthy of Scripture.
