Colossians 4:12 (Pt. 3) Thought/Prayer: Combating Whom? Topics: 2 at end.
“Epaphras, who is [one] of you, [the] bondman of Christ Jesus, salutes you, always combating earnestly for you in prayers, to the end that ye may stand perfect and complete in all [the] will of God.” DARBY http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
Epaphras, as we have learned, does combat in prayer. So who is the enemy he battles? When we pray, our battle is unseen by human eyes, and there is heard no clashing of swords or sounds of a buckler on an arm fending off butted blows. We fight against an unseen enemy who must surely realize that the battle is already won but who will fight until the very end according to our God’s timing.
Epaphras is going against the heavenlies, bad forces for evil as described in Ephesians 6:12 – We wrestle not against flesh and blood. But we are told to wrestle with prayer as our weapon, always. Epaphras did this for his fellow believers. We know that he spent time in prison with the apostle Paul (Philemon 1:23). Maybe some of the prayers for his brethren came through the down-time he would have had, as he resided there. Maybe some of his most fervent prayers for others were shaped as God led him, there in a prison.
We too must combat forces that want to destroy our witness for Christ, including our witness for Him through our efforts to promote sacred LIFE. Epaphras was unselfish in the battle he waged for those he loved, those for whom He wanted the best, that they “. . . stand perfect and complete in all [the] will of God.”
Lord, help us to be faithful like Epaphras from so long ago. Help us to uphold one another, to do battle for our fellow workers for LIFE, that we all may be stronger and know your best will in this stand we take. When we do this, surely, Lord, we will impact our world more greatly for You.
Topics: Pray to remember those like Epaphras and pray to emulate his love for his brethren through the hard battles of prayer.
