“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.” Colossians 4:2-4
We have all been part of those conversations in which we know we are only hearing a part of the story or only half of the story. It is not just difficult, but sometimes impossible to make decisions when we only know part of the story. The apostle Paul who wrote the words that are now captured in the letter to the believers in Colosse desperately wanted the whole truth, beauty, love, grace and power of who Jesus Christ is to be preached and understood by all. Many individuals are only hearing a part of the story when the whole story is available! We as a church are responsible for taking the whole story out to as many as we can and the opportunity to bring it clearly and in its entirety to Orange and the surrounding communities is there for us. Pray today that God will open the door wide in Orange for the gospel message of Jesus Christ to be proclaimed!
