Unsung Heroes of the Colossians posted by John Sorensen on May 21, 2021
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
Have you ever heard of Peter, James, John? Well, I’m sure you have but what about Epfras, or Justus, do those names ring a bell? Those are just a couple of early Christians that the apostle Paul quietly mentions in his letter to the Colossians. But who are they? Well, they were encouragers, they were prayer warriors, they were what Paul called kingdom workers, faithful unsung heroes of the early church. At the end of Colossians Paul exhorts all of us to take heed to the ministry we have received, and that we would fulfill it. So, what about you, what ministry have you received? God’s word is clear that we are all called to be faithful witnesses. Let me challenge you, along with Paul, to take heed to the ministry you have received and my hope is that you would fulfill it. Learn how to share your faith and train others to do the same, then you too will be an unsung hero of the Christian faith. To learn more about sharing the Gospel, visit share life dot today.
