The songwriter put it this way: "obedience is the very best way to show that you believe." Today we examine Paul's prayer of thanksgiving for the church in Colossae. He was grateful for for God's working in their hearts to bring them to a point where they were living lives pleasing to the Lord. That's our goal too. We want to live "worthy" of our calling in Christ.
