Paul’s letter to the Colossians.

In Colossians 4, Paul wrote final instructions to the church. Colossians is about fighting heresy. And how you do that is with the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul told masters don’t defraud their servants. Because you have a master in heaven. Also, to continue in prayer and thanksgiving. Paul wanted them to pray for him. I could also use some prayer for myself. He said to walk in wisdom, redeeming the time. And let your speech be seasoned with grace and salt, to give an answer to anyone that ask why you believe. Then Paul recommended several fellow workers in the gospel to their church. Remember this is the first century and no one could go to another church unless their pastor wrote a letter recommending them. Then Paul closes the letter with a salutation and prayer. Even though this letter was written over 2000 years ago, it still is relevant for us today. There heresy in the church today. Everything that deviates from the gospel of Jesus Christ is heresy. The truth is before us.

Crain Blanchard.
