We thank God because we have heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people. You have these because of the hope which is kept safe for you in heaven. Some time ago you heard about this hope in the Good News which is the message of truth. This Good News is present with you now. It is producing results and spreading all over the world as it did among you from the first day you heard it. At that time you came to know what God’s kindness truly means. You learned about this Good News from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant. He is taking your place here as a trustworthy deacon for Christ and has told us about the love that the Spirit has given you.
Epaphras was responsible for the sowing of the Good News that gave rise to the Colossian church.
When was the last time you shared the Good News with someone?
Now we may not all be people who end up sprouting a faith community like Epaphras but we should sow seeds of the Good News regularly.
It’s like a treasure we discovered and one we cannot keep mum about. Singaporeans are known for recommending food places to one another- and this Good News is better than anything we have ever tasted!
Food satisfies but for a while.
The Good News changes lives for an eternity.
Go to someone you know – sit down for a chat with them and tell them about the greatest thing that ever happened to you- Jesus.
