Thoughts on Colossians 4:2-6

Please read Colossians 4:2-6.  It’s  only 5 verses!  This will be the ‘text’ for PromiseLand San Marcos weekend services on Aug 1.

As you read, think about these concepts:

  • are my prayers resolute/firm/unwavering/steadfast?
  • are my prayers alert/watchful/vigilant/ready?
  • are my prayers thankful/with gratitude?
  • what doors are needed in my life that only God can open?
  • am I ready to declare the counsel/mystery/secret plan/wisdom of Jesus Christ?
  • are you ready to declare it so much that facing prison is not a deterrent?
  • do you realize that God can make it clear/easy to perceive that which you ought to speak?
  • there is a way to waste time when dealing with unsaved folks/outsiders.
  • your speech needs to be seasoned with salt/purifying language
  • God can give you the perfect/customized words to say in any situation so that you don’t waste time

OK, that is a lot for 5 verses!  But, read over the verses and let me know what you think.


Colossians 4:2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison–4 that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.

5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.  ESV
