We close Paul’s letter to the believers of Colossi with his instructions to his friend Archippus and to us.
“Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it” (Colossians 4:17).
It is important that we do not neglect the ministry God has given us. It may not always look the same, i.e. I may not always be teaching in front of a class, but I will always teach at some level.
We have a responsibility to continually study our trade or talent so that we can be offer to God our best.
