Seeking Open Doors

“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.” (Colossians 4:2-4, NKJV)

In the days of social media, it is easy for us to find opportunities to talk about whatever interests us. People easily find hours to devote to talking about their favorite political issues, sports teams, emotional events or whatever else piques their interest.

As Christians, our first priority is supposed to be the teaching of the Gospel. Paul asked his brethren to pray for him that he might have boldness (Eph. 6:19) and open doors to teach the word of God. Is that our prayer today? Are we trying to find ways to reach out with God’s Word, both in teaching the lost and strengthening the righteous? It is easy to use technology for the “fun stuff” it provides, but if we are not using it to discuss those things that should be of the greatest interest to us (the things of God) then we are not using our assets to their full potential.

This does not mean that one should waste their time on endless arguments over fruitless contrivances; nor does it mean one should simply be going around telling everyone else that they are wrong. Nevertheless, it should be obvious to anyone who we are, what we believe, and why those things are important to our lives and the lives of those around us. May God grant you boldness and open doors to serve him.
