Today's reading is the conclusion of the letter to the Colossians. Like many letters, it ends with a couple of final encouragements and some personal greetings. Interestingly, though, these final thoughts share a general guiding message. While we know that we have a new life through Christ, we still face hard struggles in this world trying to convince other people that they can have this new Christian life too. So, like the great traveling evangelists, keep spreading the message of Jesus Christ.
