HG Questions on Colossians 4:2-4

1. Paul’s epistles follow the pattern of laying down doctrine and reminding the readers of who they are in Christ before stressing the importance of those facts making a difference to their lives.Why is that so important? Discuss the benefits of living our lives in a way that reflects our faith and the damage that can result when our words or actions fail to match what we say we believe?

2. Paul asks for prayer so that a door would be opened for the message. What doors should we be asking to be opened in our lives and the life of the church?

3. The church in Colosse was facing opposition and false teaching from both outside and inside the church. The need for clear Bible based teaching was vital. The church today faces similar threats. How can we best pray for those with the responsibility of preaching today?

4. Discuss the elements of being on God’s SWAT team in prayer.

What does it mean to be steadfast, watchful and to pray with thanksgiving?
