Colossians 3:18 - 4:18
Study 6 – Colossians 3:18 – 4:18
1. The Lord should be at the center of everything and should dictate our behavior towards others whether that is in: marriage, with our children, in the work place, among our brothers and sisters in Christ, or when speaking with total strangers. Every action and every word should be one which exalts Christ.
2. In order to be effective in our prayer life and in our witness toward others we must be wise, watchful, thankful, and ready to take advantage of every opportunity. In our prayer life we need to become more like Epaphras who wrestled in prayer for others rather than focusing upon himself. I fear that our prayers are to self-centered rather than God focused and people driven.
