So, how are you doing with all the political events of the past week? I’ve talked with angry people, happy people, confused people, and weary people. A quick scan of my Facebook newsfeed reminds me I have friends from across the political spectrum, and many of them are not shy about declaring their opinion for all to see.
So here’s a question: in a world of varying ideologies, how do we engage with each other? The Bible is not silent about such things: our text for this coming Sunday gives superb guidance.
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 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— that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. (Colossians 4:2-6)
Join us as we unpack that passage and talk about what it looks like to share the Good News of Jesus in a world of people looking for hope.
See you Sunday,
