A Fruitful Gospel Colossians 1:1-8
Paul the Apostle The Church in Colossae Grace and Peace
We always thank God…. Because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all of God’s people, the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven about which you have heard about in the true message of the gospel. Grace at work in Colossae (vs 3-5)
True Gospel proclaimed Christ in you The hope of glory Love for other Christians Faith in Christ Jesus
Could we learn from the way the gospel is described? Could thanks be given for a work of God’s grace in us?
In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the world- just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. Grace at work throughout the world (vs 6)
A call to action An encouragement
