Welcome to Week 3 of Colossians, girls! God has been so faithful already in revealing His Word to us in our study, and I am more than excited to jump into a new week together!!
This week we find ourselves beginning in Colossians 1:24, where Paul begins speaking of his ministry to the church. Join me as I touch on some of Paul’s keys to effective ministry in spite of the challenging circumstances he found himself in…
(If you cannot see this video, click here to view it.)
What we can learn from Paul this week:
1. We can rejoice, even in suffering, because of our identity in Christ!
2. We are Christ’s servants, and can obediently continue the ministry he has called us to, even in the midst of challenging circumstances.
3. We can finish strong, knowing that our strength comes from “the energy Christ so powerfully works” in us.
For those of you who would like to dig deeper into our scriptures this week, I’ve provided a few additional resources below. Feel free to read or listen to them throughout the week as we dig into God’s Word together!

WEEKLY CHALLENGE: Are you in the midst of a challenging circumstance? Ask a trusted friend to pray that God will give you joy in the midst of your struggle, and that He will use you during your struggle in whatever way He sees fit, for His glory. Then have that friend keep you accountable in the days and weeks to come!
