Coffee and Colossians 52 – Receiving Jesus as Lord


  1. Very, very helpful. I may have said this before, but there’s nothing quite like a slow reading of Scripture. Of course we need to grasp the big sweep of things; such helps us to understand context and direction – but hey: Matt.13:52 “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.” i.e. know our riches. Thank you. Looking forward to the slow-mo unpacking over these verse.

  2. Thought provoking as always, thanks! But! St Paul didn’t carry a copy of the BCP Anglican Articles (or the Westminster confession) around. Acts 17-31 was the centre point of his message. Areopagus members could disagree with him or follow this strange sounding new philosophy. ‘Doctrine’ conjures up stuff so complex that ordinary people may be disinclined from ever looking it up more fully: one of life’s greatest tragedies.

  3. Pastor Robertson,
    I’ve told you before, and I’ll say it again: I listen to you first thing in the morning and several times later when I can take notes. God is certainly working through you as His timing is perfect. I am ashamed to tell you I haven’t bee praying for you, but I certainly will starting today. Your thought and explanations help encourage me daily and throughout the weeks. Thanks so much!
