Colossians 2: 1-5

I want you to know how hard I am contending for you and for those at Laodicea, and for all who have not met me personally. My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.

A thought just came to me. Paul’s contending is prayer and spirtual warfare for people he has never met. His heart is for them to be united in Christ. He is willing to fight on their behalf.

Honestly some of the questions he ask and then counters back with are make or break it for him !! But to us it makes us cratch our heads at how details so small that it feels sad that he lets them keep him from know Jesus the Messish!!

This is such a perfect testimony to me for how it takes the Spirit of God to be the ultimate Minister. Only He can answer those hidden and mysterious questions that are deep within us. I love how you worded it and it made the Holy Spirit make so much sense to me!
