Colossians 1:27-29 Psalm 56

27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. 29 To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.

  1. In us is God && he wants to make thats known to everyone so that we can give people the hope of life and show Gods glory.We tell of Gods word and his glory and all the things he has done and is to that everyone will know God.We have to have God in us for things to fall into place because what he wants is completely diffrent than what we want.

  2. vs 29 –

    1) it is going to be difficult, you are going to have to work and put forth some effort

    2) you will not be able to do it on your own, you need God involved in helping you accomplish the plans he has for you

    3) Through your labor and efforts and the combination of God’s Energy and plan, there is a tremendous power that comes from that…

  3. I like how verse 27 talks about the Gentiles because it shows that salvation is available to them and not only the Israelites. We can look at this today and understand that Christ’s sacrifice is for everyone, everyone can receive glorious riches.

  4. verse 28 to me is like a reminder and an encouragement. Everything we personally know about Christ, we share with people who don’t know Him. So they can have Christ in their lives everyday.

  5. We have to put forth effort to witness, but it is God’s energy, His HS, that really does the work of convicting hearts and changing lives. We dont have to worry about doing all the work, we just have to step up and be the testimony, and it is the HS responsibility to do the hard work.

  6. “Teaching with Wisdom”. To be effective for Christ, we must first know what we are talking about.

    That is why studying, and sharing, and discipling, are so important. We are trying to teach you to pursue God and grow in Him so that when you have a chance to teach or share it will be done with wisdom and will impact lives.

  7. i like the firt verse where it says the glorius riches of this mystery…it just goes to show you how knowing Gods word is a gift more than it is a burden or a homework assignment and we have been chosen to know it nd go and telll other people what we know about it so they can be like us an spread and spread
