To the faithful elder and his wife, I write.
The Devil tried to convince us that you were the "bad guy." Some of us didn't believe him though. Because we've witnessed your hard work and dedication for decades (online and in the local congregation you served). We know you've ministered to brethren, sacrificing your own well being for the greater good of the fold, to those who loved you, and even those who hated you. You've come a long way since the days of your rebellious youth. Your resume is not recorded in division, but unity. So no matter what the Devil tried to convince us with, it only caught traction among the idle, the willfully ignorant. We the faithful understand the hard work and wisdom you put into our common salvation. You've gotten to know our history, family, friends, strengths and weaknesses, our highs and lows, our good moments and bad ones. You wept with us, and leapt for joy with us. You were there for us, giving us meals, making sure we were well. You gave us of your time, money, teaching, and comfort. You've loved us, we know you're not perfect, but you're honest and always gave your best. Again, the Devil tried to find you guilty, his prideful arrogance facilitating a corrupt court, he even bore false witness against you and tampered with the evidence, but your faith spoke louder than Satan's attacks. For we know it is God who works in faithful shepherds. You were found victorious in Christ. Thank you, for being a humble servant. You hold much spiritual value in the kingdom. We thank God for your perseverance. May we all strive to follow your example, as you followed Christ our Lord.
Paul knew some of his brethren in Colossae were being deluded and taken captive by all sorts of persuasive deceptions, and so he instructed them what to do in order to protect themselves from such spiritual threats. Join us in this study of Colossians 2:4-8.
The kingdom of His beloved Son, the body, the church; was proclaimed in all creation. Join us in our studies this session as we journey Paul's pen within the minds of his brethren in Colossae.

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.
POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"
Gooood morning, brothers & sisters! Happy October! May your day be blessed with love, peace & happiness. much love to all 🥰🤟🏾
