“Partner Of Good Works”

Key Verse

“All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a beloved brother, and a faithful minister and fellowservant in the Lord:” Colossians 4:7

Text — Colossians 4:7-13


In the course of his missionary journeys, apostle Paul expressed appreciation to his partners in the service of God. It was thoughtful of Paul to mention them by their names with some testimonies of their good works. A partner is somebody who shares in one’s vision and helps to achieve it, not minding the cost. Partnership is common in business. Partnership in business is an arrangement where parties known as business partners, agree to cooperate to achieve success in their business. Partnership brings about mutual benefits. The best and the most rewarding form of partnership is to team up with other believers to expand the work of God. Such people will be rewarded here on earth and in heaven.

The work of God is large and it requires a lot of people to do it. Notwithstanding the greatness and size of the work, only believers can do it. As a Christian child, there are opportunities for you to work for God (evangelism, visitation, caring, singing etc.). Find the time and give your youthful energies to your Master. Identify your talents and team with other Christians to give your best to your Master both in the Church and the school fellowship. When you partner in the work of God, Jesus will commend and reward you.
