Re:Verse passage – Colossians 1:1-8 (day seven)
Our Christian faith is built on relationships. First, it is built on a relationship with Jesus Christ, then it is encouraged through relationships with brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ like Epaphras: just as you learned it from Epaphras, our beloved fellow bond-servant, who is a faithful servant of Christ on our behalf, and he also informed us of your love in the Spirit. (Col. 1:7-8)
All of us have had people like Epaphras in our lives who either shared the Gospel with us or strengthened our faith. Who are those people in your life? When did they show up? How did they edify you?
Remember those faithful saints who cared for you thanking God for them, and if possible, write them a thank you note telling them you thank God for them. It may be just the encouragement they need.
