Dearest Friends in Jesus
We are on a roll. In case you haven’t noticed, we are over half way through the first chapter of Colossians. The memorization has been so rich. What a privilege to memorize the Word of God! It is always rising up inside me and I give thanks to the Holy Spirit who has used that dramatically in my life…
It will not be until April 10th that I leave for Mindanao in the Philippines. I will be 13 hours ahead of what I am now. I plan to continue to post the verses to memorize for the week. Then, I will post the prayer thread of the same verses. Kelly & I agreed, regarding the prayer portion, that I will post it and leave each of you to post whatever you wanted prayer for under that thread. So when I conclude this post, I will create a new topic that will be Colossians 1:15-16 Prayer. That thread will go no further if no prayer requests weren’t posted. So weekly, it will be your responsibility to post what you want prayed for, even if it is the same thing for a year straight. (Or more!)
There is more I’d like to ask in reference to these verses for the next week but I will do that on another day as to not have this post so long. Here are our verses, in the ESV and KJV. If you’d like to add or subtract a version - just holler. Thanks!
Colossians1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
Colossians1: 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. (ESV)
Colossians1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Colossians1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (KJV)
Joyous learning to everyone!
