…meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, Colossians 4:3

Paul has just exhorted those at Colossae to remain vigilant in prayer with thanksgiving. He then asks them, “…meanwhile praying for us.” If prayer served no purpose except acting as some type of pressure relief valve, he would never ask for such a thing.Read the rest

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; Colossians 4:2

Paul lays heavy stress on the need for prayer in his epistles. In 1 Thessalonians 5, he tells his readers to “pray without ceasing.” The same thought is expanded upon here. He tells those in Colossae (and thus us!) to continue in prayer (as in praying without ceasing), but he tells them to do so in an earnest, steadfast manner.Read the rest

Masters, give your bondservants what is just and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven. Colossians 4:1

These words (along with the closing verse of Chapter 3) closely match Paul’s words of Ephesians 6:9 –

And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.”

Though this thought carries over from the previous chapter, there is nothing wrong with dividing the chapters in this manner.Read the rest

But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality. Colossians 3:25

This final verse of Chapter 3 (and the opening verse of Chapter 4) is close in thought to Ephesians 6:9 –

And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.”

Paul has spent the last three verses of instruction on what bondservants were to do and how they were to act while under the authority of their masters.Read the rest

knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:24

This verse, still being addressed to the bondservants, is a close parallel to Ephesians 6:8 –

“…knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.”

As a slave, this is the very last thing that they would ever dream of as coming from their owner.Read the rest
