Simply Colossians Introduction Part 2 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are in Colosse: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Colossians 1:1-2, NKJV) The city of Colosse was the smallest and least important city that Paul ever wrote a letter to. In a sense, writing this letter to this church did not work effectively to spread the gospel. Why would he invest the time and attention? Something was wrong in the church in...Read More

Odds and Sods Vol 2 Issue 25 This hurricane season is having quite an impact on people. It breaks my heart. The people in Puerto Rico are U.S citizens. I served in the military with a number of Puerto Ricans. We need to help. Their territory was already in a very poor financial situation. Is God speaking to us in this? Cheryl was off this past week.

(Matthew 7:28-29, NKJV) His audience could not but notice that Jesus taught with an authority lacking in the other teachers in His day, who often only quoted other rabbis.
