An Invitation to an Urgent Cause – Colossians 4:2-6
2 Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; 3 praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; 4 that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak.
5 Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. 6 Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
We live between the ascension and return of Christ. Our mission is urgent. So Paul’s invitation is earnest. He’s been spending his life for this cause. Paul invites the Church to join an urgent cause by devoting themselves to prayer and by living wisely in the world.
