“At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison.” (Colossians 4:3)
It’s interesting to note that God is the one who opens the door for the word… This is both liberating and encouraging. We don’t have to run around trying to pry open people’s hearts and shove the gospel through a locked steel gate. We can simply trust God and ask him to do the heavy lifting for us. He’ll open the doors. He’ll move mountains and part seas and put people in your life at just the right time when the door to their hearts is starting to creak open. And then, when God has made a way, the word will go forward from your lips.
This is the beautiful partnership we have with our Father in heaven. We ask him to open doors, he opens doors, and then we get to share about our treasure, Jesus Christ. How cool is that?
