Today we read the last chapter of The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Colossians, two Psalms and one chapter of Isaiah.
Colossians 4, Paul gave final instructions, final greetings and exhortations as he bade the Colossians (and the Laodiceans) God’s grace.
Psalm 84, of the Sons of Korah. The famous 19th century English preacher Charles Spurgeon said this Psalm was entitled “to be called The Pearl of Psalms.” He once preached a whole sermon on verse 3: “Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.”
Psalm 85, of the Sons of Korah. A prayer of thankfulness.
Isaiah 39 tells of Hezekiah’s folly, how he showed all the riches of Jerusalem to the envoys from Babylon, and he said “There will be peace for our time”, like Neville Chamberlain did before WWII.
