Colossians 1:25-27 I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Father, We thank you that we have become servants commissioned by You to present the truth of Jesus Christ. May our lives reflect the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations from the people whom You are bringing into our midst and now calling us to serve. May we be living testimonies of the glorious riches of this mystery which is Christ in us, the HOPE of glory! A HOPE they too can share which will set them free from the bondage of sin and shame and bring them into the fullness of the abundant life in Christ Jesus. Amen.
