Well, we’re nearing the end of our study in the book of Colossians, and Paul has two things he’s passionate about. I think Paul wants us to hear two things that burn in his heart.
2. Spreading the message to outsiders
Imagine what it would be like if we, Blue Oaks Church, devoted ourselves to prayer and asked God to spread the Gospel through the East Bay more powerfully than it has ever happened before. And imagine God answered that prayer.
It can happen!
Walter Wink, a New Testament theologian, says: “Human history belongs to the intercessors, to those who believe and pray the future into being.”
History doesn’t belong to those we think it belongs to. It doesn’t belong to the humanly powerful, the wealthy, the rulers, the armies, the corporations or the global media empires. History belongs to those who intercede before God. History belongs to the intercessors, to those who believe and pray the future into being. I hope to see you Sunday as we explore this further.
