And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, Colossians 3:23

Continuing on with his words to bondservants, Paul now tells them quite clearly that “whatever you do, do it heartily.” In the comparable passage in Ephesians 6, he told them that they were to be “doing the will of God from the heart.” The two thoughts mean essentially the same thing.Read the rest

Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. Colossians 3:22

Verses 22-25 closely match Ephesians 6:5-8 –

Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.”

There are some differences in the two passages though which will be evaluated.Read the rest

Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Colossians 3:21

This verse is a close match to Ephesians 6:4 –

“And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”

The word Paul uses for “provoke” is found only here and in 2 Corinthians 9:2.Read the rest

Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord. Colossians 3:20

This verse is a shortened form of Ephesians 6:1-3 –

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”

The necessity of children to be obedient to their parents is found throughout Scripture, both implicitly and explicitly.Read the rest

Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them. Colossians 3:19

After instructions to the wives, Paul next addresses the husbands. His words are carefully selected. First he says, “Husbands, love your wives.” The word is present imperative active. Thus, “You are to do this now and always, you are certainly to do it, and you are to actively do it… Love your wives!” A man and a woman are one when united in marriage.Read the rest
