Reading Colossians

It’s a great book of the bible to read and it can be a week’s project since it only has 4 chapters.  When you concentrate on just this book alone in any given week, you can get a lot out of it.   After all these years, I hadn’t realized  that every chapter of Colossians contains a verse on being thankful.

Colossians 1:12   Colossians 2:7    Colossians 3:15,17     Colossians 4:2

“Giving thanks unto the Father which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:”

“Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith as you have been taught,  abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

“…giving thanks to God and the Father by him”…“Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.”
