The Colossian Christians had strong faith in Christ, loved others, and played a key role in spreading the gospel. Overall they honored God and one another, and were accomplishing a great work. For that reason, Paul prayed for them. As a Christian, that is certainly a life you should desire! Do you want to live a life that is fruitful? Do you want to play a role in the gospel being spread throughout the whole world? Take some time to pray over these verses for yourself. Ask the Lord to fill you with the knowledge of His will, to give you wisdom and spiritual understanding, and to help you walk in a way that fully pleases Him. You can’t be FRUITFUL in your work until you’re through FAITHFUL in your walk and following His will.
