This morning at our Senior Saints Bible Study we wrapped up our time in Genesis. We have been using a book by Nancy Guthrie and in the last chapter she wisely and powerfully took us from the prophetic blessing of Judah to the ultimate fulfillment in Revelation where the “Lion of Judah” is revealed as the only one who can open the scroll. I mentioned to the ladies that this was something like the theme we would be exploring together Sunday morning in our study of Colossians. We are going back to the prayer of the apostle we looked at two weeks ago but this time to focus in on the beautiful Old Testament imagery he uses and the deep importance of understanding it.

I vaguely remember seeing something years ago along the lines of “What Christians say” translated to “What Christians mean”. One that I remember, probably because I found it particularly painful was saying “I’ll pray for you” actually meaning nothing. I am sorry that that is often true of some of us and probably at least sometimes true for all of us. It clearly was not true of Paul. In our first week in Colossians we saw that he gave thanks to God for the faithful believers there but now he not only tells them he prays for them but reveals the contents of his prayers on their behalf. I find it most instructive. Hope you will also as we look at it together this week.

So now with Easter behind us and Spring possibly somewhere ahead, we are going to begin studies in the book of Colossians. We get started this week with some introductory matters and a look at how and why this ancient letter is very relevant today.
