Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:3-6

To understand intellectually the sovereignty of God and  the dispensing of grace, is one thing. To have heart-  knowledge and spiritual confidence in His finished work  accomplished at Calvary, is quite another. Being secure in the  hope of Heaven and at peace in this present world of strife and  turmoil - this is the rich return enjoyed by the faithful saints  of God. Nothing delights the heart of the servant of Christ as  does the evidence that his hearers have fully accepted and are  faithfully upholding the blessed gospel of God's grace.

The apostle Paul joyfully expresses this pleasure in the  salutation of his letter to the church at Colosse. Despite his  sufferings and persecutions, hardships and rejections, Paul  never fails to take delight in the fruits of his labors as he  ministers the word of reconciliation. Addressing the Colossian  saints, he writes, "We give thanks to God and the Father of our  Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of  your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all  the saints, for the hope which is laid up for you in heaven,  whereof ye heard before in the word of truth of the gospel;  which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth  forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it,  and knew the grace of God in truth."

To know the grace of God in truth is to know the grace of  God in its fulness-in all its significance and power. Hence  Paul's prayer for the believers, "that ye might be filled with the  knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual  understanding; that ye might walk worthy of the Lord" (verses  9b & ioa),
