   Paul is anxious to make it manifest, that is, to preach the Gospel in such a way, that it will be readily understood by the people. This should be the desire of every believer who wishes to make Christ known. There is no virtue in being “deep.” We must aim to reach the masses of humanity & to do so, we must present the Gospel simply & clearly.

 

   Christians should walk in wisdom toward those who are outside. In our every day behavior we are being watched by those who are unbelievers. The world is more interested in our walk than in our talk. Someone has said “I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day.” That does not mean that as Christians we should not confess Christ with our lips, but the point is, is that his walk should correspond with his talk. It should never be said of a Christian, “high talk, low walk.”

 

   Redeeming the time; means taking advantage of opportunities. Every day of our lives we face opportunities for witnessing to the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ. As these opportunities come along we should be ready to take advantage of them. We should be able to take advantage no matter the cost.

 

   Our speech should always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that we may know how we ought to answer each one. If our conversation is to be always with grace, It must be courteous, humble & Christlike.  It should be free from gossip, uncleanness, & bitterness.

 

   That you may know how you ought to answer each one.

Perhaps Paul is thinking here of the Gnostics who came to the Colossians with their plausible doctrines. They should be ready to answer these false teachers with words of wisdom & faithfulness.

 

   We should be enthusiastic <> “That we know how we ought to answer every man.
