Actors in a Supporting Role
In Colossians 4:7-14 Paul writes about a cast of character who play a supporting role in the work of the ministry.

May God use this message to encourage us to give our best to the Lead Actor, in the drama of redemption, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

And it should include teaching others with wisdom, the truths of God. How can we do this? God provides all the power necessary!
