Those in the church in Colosse were called by two names: (1) saints, or holy ones, and (2) faithful brethren. This profound designation by Paul raises a few troubling questions.
What does it mean to be a faithful brethren?
How do you become a faithful brethren?
What does a faithful brethren look like?
And how does the Holy Spirit fit into any of this?
Especially, when we discover the word faithful means: “those worthy of trust, belief, confidence, and duty; those steadfast, sure, truthful, firm; those who do not waver, unmovable.”
Does any of this describe you? Does it describe anyone you personally know? And, if not, why? What does that say about the church of today, or about you and me personally?
To find out how to become a faithful brethren, keep listening.
The following is a study on Colossians 1:2 and becoming a faithful brethren.
