Colossians 4

Colossians 4 – A READY ANSWER

“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.” Colossians 4:5-6

Paul understood the power of a testimony. At the end of his letter to the Christians, he left a few important words of wisdom.

  1. Walk wisely…
  2. Speak graciously…
  3.  Be ready to…

The Colossians were an educated group of Christians. They realized that their unbelieving peers were watching and were curious about their faith in Jesus Christ.

Paul encouraged them to be ready! The opportunity to be used by the King had its eternal rewards. The potential impact was HUGE: a soul being saved… a crown being earned… hearing the words from Jesus “Well done good and faithful servant!”

 

CHALLENGE

How is your walk with the Lord? Are you ready for the King’s orders? The world is watching, and many lost people NEED a savior. Those without salvation, are hungry for the truth, and God is looking for a few good men and women to serve in His kingdom. God is calling! Answer the call!
