Chapter One, Lesson Three
PLEASING THE LORD Colossians 1:9-12 Print this Bible Study
** As our study together last week came to an end, we benefited from the life of Epaphras who showed us the joy of "Learning to Serve" our Lord with our entire life. We saw in verse six of chapter one that the gospel bears fruit as we are faithful to serve our Lord. Do you recall the three ways in which the gospel bears fruit?
** So far in this wonderful epistle, Paul has shown us the example of "Praying Always" and Epaphras has taught us to be "Learning to Serve". Today, Paul will take our prayer life to the next level by getting very specific in the kinds of things for which we should be in prayer on behalf of one another. As we do so, we will find ourselves "Pleasing the Lord", which is the highest call for any child of God.
Let's read our passage together so we learn how to be "Pleasing the Lord", even in our prayer life for each other.
