A Team Effort
Passage: Colossians 4:7–4:11
If you’ve watched a movie in the last decade, then you know about ignoring a long list of credits at the end of a film. Paul in Colossians 4:7 through the end of the chapter, gives us some ending credits; he mentions names of individuals who have participated in Gospel ministry. And we may be tempted to skip it, but then we would be missing out on an important portion of Scripture.
We learn from this text that God uses all believers to play a role in the advancement of His work on this earth. We also learn about the beauty of faithfulness from these individuals. Let’s see who these folks are and what we can take away from their example.
- Tychicus – The Trusted Messenger
- Onesimus The Transformed Sinner
- Aristarchus – The Committed Servant
- Mark – The Restored Deserter
- Justus – The Obscure Workman
We will cover the other three individuals and conclude Colossians next week.
