February 13th, 2018 - Col 1:1-2

                   Daily Devotional <> February 13, 2018 <> Tuesday

                       The Character of Christ <> Colossians 1:1-2

                          Point of Contact <> Bro Ben Van Winkle

 

   Here as the writer of Colossians, Paul introduces himself as an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God. An Apostle was one who had been sent forth by the Lord Jesus as a messenger. In order to confirm the message that they preached, Apostles were given the power to perform miracles

(2 Corinthians 12:12). And when the Apostles laid hands on believers, they received the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:15-20; 19:6)Today we have no Apostles in the strict sense of the word, & it is foolish today for men to claim to be successors of the original twelve. Ephesians 2:20, is taken by many to indicate that the work of those with the gift of an Apostle or prophet had to do briefly with the founding of the church, in contrast with the work of Evangelists, pastors, & teachers of today (Ephesians 4:11), which continues.

   Paul traces his Apostleship to the will of God (Acts 9:15; Galatians 1:1)

It was not an occupation he had chosen for himself, for which he had been trained in. Neither was it given to him by human ordination. It was not from men or through men, his entire ministry was carried out under the realization that God himself had chosen him to be an Apostle.

  

   This letter was written to the saints & faithful brethren in Christ who were in Colosse. Saints, means that we are separated from the world & that as a result we should lead Holy lives. Faithful brethren indicates that we are children of a common Father through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. Christians are also called disciples & believers in other sections of the New Testament.

 

   Grace to you & peace from God our Father & the Lord Jesus Christ. The order of the words are significant, Grace first, then peace. If God had not first acted in love & mercy toward us, we would still be in our sins. But because He took the initiative & sent His Son to die for us, we now can have peace with God, peace with man, & the peace of God in our souls.
