This site is dedicated to the exposition of the Scriptures. The contributors seek to “proclaim Him” … so that everyone may be presented perfect in Christ.” (Colossians 1:28)


Prayer for individuals who investigate the teachings at this website:

[Note: This prayer is in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Church in Colossae.  See Colossians 1:9-14.  These verses are parsed in order to highlight the important thoughts.]

I am “asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will”

so that

“you may live a life worthy of the Lord,” and “you may please Him in every way.”

 

There are four activities by which you can “live a life worthy of the Lord” and “please Him in every way.”  You must

1.  “bear fruit in every good work

2.  “grow in the knowledge of God”

3.  “be strengthened with all power” (so that you “may have great endurance and patience”), and

4.  “joyfully give thanks” because you are qualified “to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.”

 

You are “qualified to share in the inheritance: because you have been rescued by the Father (from the dominion of darkness)

and

brought into the kingdom of Jesus Christ, the Son.
