Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye have risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead. Col. 2:12

    We have been buried with Christ in baptism by God who raised Him from the dead. Now we can seek those things in heaven that are risen with Christ by faith. So now brothers and sisters let us rise from the dead with Christ too so we can live victoriously by faith in God.

  • #For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power: Col. 2:9,10

    Thank God for in Jesus Christ all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily and we are complete in Him, so give God all the glory. For He is the head of all principality and power. Thank God it pleased the Father to send His Son in the likeness of man to die on the cross so that we could be at peace with Him through the blood of His cross. Now we are accepted in the Beloved because of what He did for us.

  • #For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you and for them at Laodicea and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God and of the Father and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col. 2:1-3

    Paul is concerned that the believers be steadfast in their faith in Christ in Laodicea even though they did not see his face he was with them in spirit. True riches is Christ in you the hope of glory. That was the mystery hid from the ages made known to them by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • #Whom we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: whereunto I also labor, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. Col. 1:28,29

    Paul had a goal to present every man mature in Christ Jesus, therefore that is why he labored so diligently to preach the gospel by the grace of God mightily. We too should strive to preach Christ and Him crucified for our sins so that we can live a life of victory in Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • #And He is before all things and in Him, all things consist. Col. 1:17

    Christ delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son, who is before all things and in Him, all things consist. Thank God that it pleased the Father that in Him, all the fulness of the Godhead dwells. He is the firstborn from the dead and made peace with God by the blood of His cross. Thank God Jesus is the mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you the hope of glory. Give Him praise today for He is worthy of all our praises.

  • #As you also learned of Epaphras our dear fellow-servant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ; who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. Col. 1:7,8

    Paul is thankful for Epaphras a faithful minister of the Lord Jesus Christ who declared your love in the Spirit, which is paramount for living the Christian life. For love bears all things, believes all things, endures all things, is not puffed up, but rejoices in the truth; keeps no record of wrongs. This sounds like a great recipe for a great marriage and that is what love in the Spirit is all about. Thank God for Epaphras and may there be much more in the Church.

  • #Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God and Timotheus our brother, to the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 1:1,2

    Paul introduces himself as an apostle by the will of God and Timotheus was not an apostle but a fellow worker and son in the ministry with Paul. To be an apostle you had to see Jesus and we know that Timotheus did not have that experience like Paul did on the Damascus road. What peace we have in the Church by the Holy Spirit and it is through grace. This is a common introduction by the apostle in his epistles. May the Lord so grant His peace to us as we study this great epistle.

  • #Now unto God and our Father be glory forever and ever Amen. Phil. 4:20

    Paul gives his doxology for this glorious book, may we put into practice everything we have learned giving God all the glory for what He is doing in our lives.

  • #But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:19

    Paul recounts the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, by stating the fact that our God will supply all our needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. We do not have to worry about running out of money for our daily needs. God supplies just what we need when we need it. So worry about nothing and pray about everything. That is how Paul was able to succeed on all his missionary journeys. When we put the business of the Lord first, then He provides for our business. This is a very comforting verse and one that you should commit to memory. May the Lord bless you richly my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ.

  • #But I have all and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odor of sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. Phil. 4:18

    Paul is thankful to the Lord for Epaphroditus, who was used by the Church to deliver an odor of sweet smell, a gift well pleasing to God. How faithful God is to put the right people in our lives at the right time to deliver us from affliction. I pray that you will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living by waiting on God to provide for all of our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
