The Believer's Proclamation - October 17, 2021
Colossians 1:28-29 
Dr. Don Wilton

Paul is awaiting execution as he writes these verses to the people of Colossae. Amid the dire circumstances of his life, he makes this proclamation that challenges us as believers today .

Dr. Wilton shares 3 questions that our proclamation should consider: As believers, what do we do? Why do we do it? How do we do it? As believers we are commanded to be engaged in the spread of the Gospel. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are privileged to be part of God's mission through our words and lives. Perhaps today is a time to do a check on how we are dealing with these issues. Do we have a faith to proclaim? If so, how are we proclaiming it? Are we silent or do we boldly share with others?

Remember that we are blessed indeed to have the Holy Spirit within us to do His work after we proclaim Jesus! We are not alone. Perhaps this week we will be challenged to intentionally proclaim our beliefs and share Jesus to a searching world!
