Colossians Part XVI - Prayer and Witness (4:2-6)
Today we reach the end of Paul's section on the contours of love. Paul urges the Colossians – don’t only love one another, love the broader church by praying for me and love those who don’t yet know Jesus by walking before them in wisdom. These two commands of prayer and witness call us up short as modern evangelicals in America - we are largely prayerless and don't do well at witnessing. Why is this?
