RECOGNIZING HIS SERVANTS   Colossians 4:7-11             Print this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** At the conclusion of last week's study, we listened to King David while he was "Remembering Our Master". In Psalm 19:14 David said, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer." How have you done in your efforts to live each day "Remembering Our Master"?

It has been an encouragement to my own heart to be continually mindful of our gracious Lord, no matter what each day may bring.

** What were the four areas of a Christian's life which can be impacted for the glory of God as he or she is
"Remembering Our Master"?

1) Our prayer life becomes devoted and alert.
2) We speak forth the mystery of Christ.
3) We conduct ourselves with wisdom.
4) We speak with grace and "salt".

I hope that you were able to see growth in your own life, in these specific areas, as you were faithful to remember Him each day.

MOTIVATE

** One of the ironies of the Christian life is that even though we all strive to live for the glory of God
(1Corinthians 10:31), once we have established a God glorifying pattern in our lives (totally by His grace) we become shy or embarrassed if anyone says something about that which we have done that was designed to bring Him glory! Instead of praising God publicly for what He has accomplished in our own hearts, we say, "Oh, please do not say anything - I'm not worthy".

Well, that is true. We are not worthy, but His is! And we should be willing to put His glory on display. In our passage for today the apostle Paul will demonstrate this principle by "Recognizing His Servants" in this closing portion of his letter to the Colossians. Paul is going to list five different individuals who bring glory to God by their lifestyle and we would do well to learn from their example.
