Colossians 4:2–6 (ESV)
steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 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— 4 that
I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always
be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
Today’s reading is more about spiritual leaving… full of
prayer and thanksgiving. The focus is not for ourselves, but for others… nonbelievers!
I pray: O Lord, help me to become less and put others
before me. Help me to pray and give thanks for all opportunities to spread the Gospel. Amen.
