“Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” Colossians 4:5–6
Read Colossians 4:5–6
Lord, as the new series kicks off, we ask that you would provide opportunities for Pastor Mark to proclaim your Word through the media or any avenue that would facilitate the spread of your Word. Give him wisdom as he engages those who are outside of the church so he could graciously—yet boldly—present the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I ask that you would open a door for the gospel to be declared clearly by the pastors and ministry leaders of the local churches (Col. 4:3–4). May they be presented with new opportunities to connect with individuals and groups in their community and new vigor in leading their congregation in sharing the gospel with others.
Empower me, as well, that I would be courageous, walking in wisdom as I seek to share the gospel with those who do not know you yet. Give me an opportunity to lovingly defend your truth today. Holy Spirit, give me the words you want me to say and help me to rely on you as I share your truth.
