Hello Colossae!

Today's reading: Colossians 1:1-14

For the next week or so we're going to read through the book of Colossians. The writer of this book is Paul (with the help of Timothy), and his letter is directed to Christ-followers in Colossae. Paul and Timothy have never met these people, but they have heard about them through Epaphras, a fellow believer who ministered to the people in Colossae and helped plant a church there.

As this letter begins, Paul lets this group know that he and Timothy have been and are consistently praying for them and their spiritual growth.

"And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding." (vs. 9).

He then goes on to encouragingly urge this group of believers to continue walking in faith and growing in Christ.

Imagine yourself as one of the believers in Colossae who received this letter. Were you encouraged? Thankful? Excited? What impact did these beginning verses have on you, and why? What does this passage reveal about the importance of praying for the spiritual growth of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and of coming alongside to encourage one another? Tami

Tami,this letter is full of praise and encouragement to this saints in Collossae.

It is so important to praying for one another and especially for young believers who like these saints were exposed to false teaching.
It is important that we all pray for each other so we grow in the Lord through our personal prayer lives and our time spent in the Word of God so we grow to the Lord more and His will for our lives.
I would add to memorize Scriptures too.

I am looking forward to the study of this letter and pray that others will come on board to be blessed and to grow in Lord to strength us to do His will.
