Colossians 4

4:2 1 2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

(1) He adds certain general exhortations, and at length ends his epistle with various familiar and godly salutations. (2) Prayers must be continual and earnest.
4:3 3 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
(3) Those who minister the word, must especially be entrusted to the prayers of the Church.
(a) An open and free mouth to preach the Gospel.
4:5 4 Walk b in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the c time.
(4) In all parts of our life, we ought to have good consideration even of those who are outside of the Church.
(b) Advisedly and cautiously.
(c) Seek occasion to win them, even though you lose something of your own by it.
4:6 5 Let your speech [be] alway with d grace, seasoned with e salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
(5) Our speech and talk must be applied to the profit of the hearers.
(d) Fit for the profit of your neighbour.
(e) Against this is set filthy communication, as in (Ephesians 4:29).
4:11 And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These f only [are my] fellowworkers unto the g kingdom of God, which have been a comfort unto me.
(f) Hence, Peter was not at that time in Rome.
(g) In the Gospel.
