People's Bible Notes for Colossians 4:2


Col 4:2 Continue in prayer. Prayer ought to be regular, habitual. The Christian should every day have a season of prayer. See Lu 18:1 Ac 1:14 Eph 6:18. Watch in the same. Watch that you pray aright, in earnest, and ask for what you ought. With thanksgiving. Let thanks for mercies given ascend as you ask for new mercies.

    Colossians 4:6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. I have to remind myself, answering everyone with guidelines and with Grace. God is Love, there for we must Love one another.

    Verse 6 is so important when it comes to communication with non believers. Always be mindful how you witness to people. As a Christian, we must be tactful with grace in spreading the word of God. Some people really don't believe that hell exist or that Jesus can save you from your sins. But how would they know unless we show them through the word of God. Be wise as a serpent
