Wesley's Notes for Colossians 3:23


3:23 Heartily - Cheerfully, diligently. Menpleasers are soon dejected and made angry: the single - hearted are never displeased or disappointed; because they have another aim, which the good or evil treatment of those they serve cannot disappoint.

    COLOSSINS 3:19 HUSBANDS LOVE YOUR WIVES AND BE NOT BITTER AGAINST THEM 1 JOHN 2:5 but whoso keepeth HIS word in him verily is the love of GOD perfected hereby we know that we are in HIM 1 JOHN 5:3 FOR THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD THAT WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE NOT GRIEVOUS ***JOHN 14:15 --- IF YOU LOVE ME --- KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS***

    COLOSSIANS 3:1 if you then be risen with CHRIST seek those things which are above where CHRIST sitteth on the right hand of GOD --3:2-- set your affection on things above not on things on the earth --3:3-- for you are dead and your life is hid with CHRIST in GOD --3:4 when CHRIST who is our life shall appear then shall you also appear with HIM in glory
  • HL BL
    "...above all these things put on charity,3:14" "Charity...beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth." 1Cor.13:4-8; "3:14 ...the bond of perfectness", capsules the essence of The Godhead and the Word; God is Love. Love sent His Son to Calvary that we may have eternal life, because of this Love came the Comforter--the Spirit of Truth.
  • Steve morrow
    COLOSSIANS 3:23 and whatsoever you do do it heartily as to THE LORD and not unto men --3:24-- knowing that of THE LORD you shall receive the reward of the inheritance for you --- SERVE THE LORD CHRIST --3:25-- BUT HE THAT DOETH WRONG SHALL RECEIVE FOR THE WRONG WHICH HE HATH DONE AND THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS
