Scripture: Colossians 1 Revisited
6b In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. 7 You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.
The gospel was communicated using people. Epaphras was the go between between a group of believers and a possible group of believers. This is how it works, not just in Colossae, but ‘throughout the whole world’.
The first steps that someone takes to meet another with the message of Jesus Christ are usually the most difficult. As it is with any movement from a dormant position, those who trust God have to get up and move forward!
God, help me to trust you and to walk in your pathway. You have drawn it out so clearly, albeit uphill.
