The W’s of Evangelism • Colossians 4:5-6 – Elder Bryce Lowrance After Paul teaches the church to pray for an open door for him to ably preach the gospel, he instructs the church how its members ought to live their daily lives. They are to act as God’s children toward them that are WITHOUT the church. In doing this, they are to WALK in WISDOM with their words being WITH grace, seasoned WITH salt. They are to make the most of every moment to glorify God and promote the kingdom of Christ.

Let us not be like the Pharisees and find excuses to not press into the kingdom. If we endeavor to serve the Lord we will find rest unto our souls. If we act like these unbelievers… well, just look at the lives of those who stayed at Jerusalem up until 70 A.D.
Have a feast, invite friends, but do not neglect to invite those who cannot return the favor or even help themselves.
The best thing that we can do is to humble ourselves and seek out others that we can help.
Oh, that we could have the same motive as Jesus in everything we do! Let us us think of others before ourselves in all that we say or do.

By the way, anyone who claims to be Christian or use the name of Jesus and states that He never claimed to be God, needs to take another look at this passage!
Jesus will declare the doctrine of sovereign grace in short, easy to understand, and comforting terms. This is not the doctrine of Calvin nor even of Paul for it did not have its origins from either of those men. This doctrine came straight from the Son of God Himself!
Jesus declares these marvelous words of comfort to warn the unbelieving Jews that no matter what they do, they will never take God’s people away from Jesus!
Our worship should be simple enough so that we are not distracted by the practice and lose focus from our Object of worship – Jesus Christ.
