Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. —Colossians 4:2-4
Even in prison Paul had the desire to “proclaim the mystery of Christ.” Not only did he want to “proclaim the mystery of Christ,” but his desire was that he might “proclaim it clearly, as (he) should. He asked the Colossians to “pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message.” This too is how we should be praying for each other today— “that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ” and do so “clearly, as (we) should. What is that mystery? — “this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).
Dear Father, today may I and everyone who reads this commit to proclaiming the mystery of Christ during this day. I ask that Your Holy Spirit would enable us to proclaim this mystery clearly to others. Oh, may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fZ-tBR7LJ0
