Learning From Those Who Walked On Ahead, part 1
Today’s message comes from Colossians 4:7-14 where the Apostle Paul lists a number of people who are part of the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As we come to the last few messages from the letter to the Colossians we come to a list of names of associates and friends of the apostle Paul. We could call these people “the early-day saints.”
The glory of the Bible is that in it we have an unbroken and trustworthy record of the early-day saints! In this section we will recognize these saints to be the same kind of people as we are today. They have the same Lord, and believe the same dramatic, dynamic truths that we believe. This, then, is a very relevant passage for us.
