I’m glad that it was suggested that we have a pause in between the chapters as I cannot get Paul’s words down in verses in 27 & 28! I will be there when we begin Colossians 2.
I’m home form the Philippines. That 6 weeks was one of the most dynamic times of my life. It was extremely hard to leave. The trip home was arduous with many bumps which will make it very memorable. My suitcase is lost and still not found. Anyway, I’ll find memorizing easier in my routine.
A couple of things came to my mind that I’d like to address. First of all, any of you that have been sitting on the bleachers, now is your chance to dive in and learn Colossians 2. Most everyone who memorized Colossians 1 will tell you that they did not not think that they had it in them to do it. You can not only do it, you’ll be so thankful that you did. If actors can learn all of those meaningless lines, we can learn only 23 verses. It is life changing.
Secondly, I wanted to ask that you post a verse or some words from Colossians 1. Is there a verse that you still can’t comprehend or is there one that you can feast on the rest of your life? Your comments often cause us to sit up and take notice of something that we hadn’t seen before.
I’ll throw out part of two verses that have been special to me: “I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to his saints.” (From Col 1:25-26) I can’t have a week go by without posting Scripture.
Dear Precious Saints, this would not be the same for me if I memorized the exact same chapters that I did but did so on my own. Thanks for your fellowship. To hear from you is such an encouragement.
Be ready for chapter 2 next week! I’m preaching to me!!
