Colossians 1:24-2:5 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church...
Paul is laying out how he has been called by God to teach and preach God's Word in Colossians 1:24-2:5. Well, even though we're not Paul and we may not be preachers by vocation, God expects all of us to be sharing His Word with those around us. So when Paul writes about making "the word of God fully known" (vs. 25) and when he says in verse 28 "Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ," that motivates me to make sure I'm talking with others about God and His life changing Word.
How are you making the Word of God known to others? (Think of one example in the past week.) And going forward, how can you make God's Word known even more? Tami
