Developing strong Christian community and remaining connected through the highs and lows of life takes a lot of work. In today’s passage (Colossians 1:24 – 2:5), Paul, writing from jail, expresses deep emotion in describing both his desire to see the church understand its purpose and the bonds that should hold fellow believers together. He says:

“I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:2-3

How connected are you to other fellow believers? How can you strengthen those relationships? Take one practical step today to encourage someone from church.

To follow the full reading plan, read Colossians 1:24-29 and 2:1-5 today.
