  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:7-8
    Tychicus is probably not a name you remember from the Bible. In verse 7, Paul commends him as a “beloved brother, faithful minister, and fellow servant in the Lord.” Tychicus was an Asian man, probably converted under Paul’s fruitful ministry in Ephesus (Acts 19 and 20). He became a minister and was very helpful to the Apostle Paul, who entrusted him with letters to various churches.

    The Dutch are worrying because mines are coming up on the beaches in the northern part of the Netherlands, present a problem to the Dutch authorities. With as many as 15 mines have been reported found in one day in the section of the beach. The Dutch have cause to worry and some of the mines explode as they drift towards the shore and others remain “alive” until touched off by human hands.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:2-6
    We have looked at these verses individually, but it can be helpful to take them as a whole and consider the emphasis Paul makes on hearing God’s word. He asks for prayer so the Lord will provide open doors for the proclamation of the gospel. He also covets prayer so that he will speak the truth of Christ clearly, making it plain to those who hear it.
  • Impeachment is about to make everything worse.

Neshoba Countians are proud of the excellent showing made by these contestants.
  • Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.     
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:5-6
    In these verses Paul speaks to us of the importance of being a conscientious Christian witness. He had asked the Christians in Colossae to pray that the Lord would open doors for the gospel to go forth, and now he directs all Christians to be outreach-oriented, holding out Christ to a lost world.
