The Fortification of the Christian Life

Colossians 4:2-6 

2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison– 4 that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

  1. Persevere in Prayer:
    a. Prayerlessness is a sign of faithlessness (Luke 18).
    b. Pray with thanksgiving, being watchful. There is much to thank God for.
    c. Pray purposefully, that the mystery of Christ will be revealed.
  2. Walk in Wisdom:
    a. In a way that is worthy to what you are called to.
    b. Because of the lack of time, death awaiting all of us.
    c.Do something constructive with your time.
  3. Speak with grace and grow in it.
    No corrupt communication is to come out of our mouths, but only what edifies.
