The Gospel Bears Fruit in Colossae (Col. 1:3-8)

In recent decades a trend has developed toward restoring environmental areas to their original habitat. One aspect of this involves introducing plants that at one point were native to the area. A plant that is re-introduced not only should grow well, but also gives life to the larger eco-system—by enriching soil, attracting insects and animals, its fragrance, and so on.  

Stored Up for You

Stored Up for You

Colossians 1: 5 says that our faith and love spring from, “the hope stored up in heaven.” It’s a phrase that brings to mind 2 Timothy 4:8, where Paul says that, “there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”
