“Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.”

Today’s devotion comes from Colossians 4:14-18.

“Luke, the beloved physician, sends you his greetings, and also Demas.  Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea and also Nympha and the church that is in her house.  When this letter is read among you, have it also read in the church of the Laodiceans;  and you, for your part read my letter that is coming from Laodicea.  Say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.”

I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand.  Remember my imprisonment.  Grace be with you.”  Colossians 4:14-18.


“But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”  2 Timothy 4:5.

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;”  2 Corinthians 4:7.

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.  For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;  to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life.  And who is adequate for these things?”  2 Colossians 2:14-16. 

But, there is hope!

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10.

“for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.”  Philippians 2:13.

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 1:6.
