Colossians 4:2-6

Chapter 4:2-6 Conversation


Colossians 4:2-6


A1 Scripture

B1 Be devoted to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving; praying at the same time also for us, that God would open a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, because of which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, to know how you ought to answer each one. (Colossians 4:2-6, EMTV)

B2 Be persistent in prayer, and keep alert as you pray, giving thanks to God. At the same time pray also for us, so that God will give us a good opportunity to preach his message about the secret of Christ. For that is why I am now in prison. Pray, then, that I may speak, as I should, in such a way as to make it clear. Be wise in the way you act toward those who are not believers, making good use of every opportunity you have. Your speech should always be pleasant and interesting, and you should know how to give the right answer to everyone. (Colossians 4:2-6, GNB92)
