Colossians 4:1-6 (ESV)

Further Instructions

4 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. 

 

The beginning hits at the heart of love your neighbor as yourself.  Treat every one fairly and justly.  Remember that you are being watched by God.  We fear and trust God.  I remember my Dad and I know that he loved me, and he also was the one who punished me too.  Not every one has a dad that loves them, but we do have a Father (God) who loves us.  It is nice to be loved.  When you are loved, you want to proclaim it to the world.  Verse 3 states: pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word.  Use us Lord!  Help us to take advantage of every opportunity as doors are opened to us.

 

I pray: O Lord, help us to be bold and to tell others about your love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness for us! Amen.
