THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE COLOSSIANS

CHAPTER 4
 

WORDS SEASONED WITH SALT

          Good day to you, and welcome back to Daily Bread. Our study today takes us through the last chapter of Paulís letter to the Colossians. When we closed our study last time, Paul was addressing those who serve, and how they should think of their work as serving the Lord, and not man.

          Now Paul addresses those who are in authoritative positions, saying, Pay those who serve you what is fair and just, knowing that you also have a boss in Heaven. Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving, and praying for us too, that God will open to us a door for the Word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am in bonds, that I may make it plain as I should speak.

          There are two things that you should know about these first four verses. What does it mean, Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving? Well, continue in prayer is fairly clear ... Keep praying. But what does watch in the same mean? It could mean several things. Watch could mean, be careful, be attentive, be awake, be guarded, tend to, be vigilant, be expectant, or wait. The words ďthe sameĒ refer to something that was mentioned previously in the sentence, in this case, the same = prayer. So, letís just choose one of the definitions above and put it together. Keep praying and be expectant (expect God to answer) in your prayer, with thanksgiving (expressing thanks to God).

          Next, Paul mentions being in bonds, so we can assume that he wrote this epistle while he was in prison in Rome. Heís asking the Colossians to pray that God would somehow give them (Paul, Timothy and others who were with him) an opportunity to preach the Word, because spreading the Good News from prison didnít seem to be the ideal situation (but Paul didnít let it hinder him).

          Have you noticed that Paul uses many phrases that arenít familiar in our time? It takes a little digging to figure out what they mean today, but thatís all part of the fun. When you solve what something means in the Bible, that was unclear when you first read it, it gives you a great feeling of contentment, doesnít it? Here comes some more of those phrases.

          Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.  Let your speech be always with Grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how to answer every man. Which could be said this way: Speak with love and Forgiveness. Seasoned with salt as to be able to reach and teach every man.

LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE SEASONED WITH SALT

WHAT DOES LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE SEASONED WITH SALT MEAN, HOW DO WE WHAT DOES LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE SEASONED WITH SALT AND HOW DOES ONE WHO DOES WHAT DOES LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE SEASONED WITH SALT ENHANCE THEIR SPEECH?

          But what does Paul mean when he says "Seasoned with Salt" ... Jesus used Salt to express how we as Christians would be Salted with fire (Holy Spirit) which means we would be fiery or passionate. Jesus goes on to say that if salt loses it's flavor, we would not use it on our food therefore if we as Christians lose the salt (passion) we are useless to the Ministry.  Mark 10:49-50

          Soooooooooooooooooo, Paul is saying ... Be passionate about your beliefs and that will add fiery flavor to your words of TRUTH and those you are sharing with will FEEL your Fiery Words and CHOOSE to believe.

          Now Paul begins his farewells. All my affairs, Tychicus will inform you of, who is a beloved brother, a faithful minister and fellow-servant in the Lord, whom I have sent to you to find out your estate (welfare) and comfort your hearts, with Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you (from Colosse or Asia). (You can read more about Onesimus in Paulís letter to Philemon.) They will tell you about all things that are done here (in Rome). Itís a safe bet that this letter was sent to Colosse with these two friends of Paul.

          Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner greets you, and Marcus, who is Barnabusí nephew (touching whom you received commandments. If he comes to visit you, welcome him), and Justus, who are Jewish believers. These three are my co-workers for the kingdom of God, which have been a comfort to me.

          Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, greets you, always praying hard for you, that you may stand perfect and complete in all of Godís will. I tell you the TRUTH, he has a great zeal (fondness) for you and those in Laodicea and Hierapolis (nearby cities to Colosse).

WORDS SEASONED WITH SALT BIBLE LESSON WITH WORDS SEASONED WITH SALT BIBLE EXPLANATION

          Luke the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you. Greet the brethren that are in Laodicea, and greet Nymphas and the church which is in his house (his family, friends, etc.). And when this epistle is read among you, see that it is also read in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle that I wrote to those in Laodicea. Tell Archipus, Take care of the ministry that you have received from the Lord, and fulfill it.

          The salutation (letter of greeting, or signature) by the hand (written) of me, Paul. Remember my imprisonment. Grace be with you. Amen.

          Just a quick note ... Laodicea is one of the seven churches of Asia, written of in the book of Revelation. Jesus gives John a message to write to each of the seven churches and the message to the Laodiceans is in Revelation 3:14-22. Although the seven churches were real, existing congregations, perhaps they also symbolize different attitudes that we all have and these messages reveal what the consequences of those attitudes will be if we donít overcome them. Definitely something to think about. Find out more about this in the Salvation Study in the RELATED STUDIES below.

          Congratulations on completing another great study from the New Testament! Be sure to join in again as we open Paulís first letter to the Thessalonians. I look forward to sharing it with you, right here at Daily Bread.
