This devotional is a continuation of Radical Christianity, Part 2, which started the process of helping us focus on defining our legacy as Joshua had done. Joshua’s legacy is clearly defined and displayed in Joshua chapter three and his legacy must become our legacy.
Epaphras was a disciple of the Apostle Paul. Paul was in chains in prison when he wrote to the church in Colosse about him. Paul’s desire was for us to become disciples of Christ Jesus just like Epaphras. His description of Epaphras is seen in Colossians 4:12. He tells the church in Colosse that Epaphras was a bondservant of Christ who always labored fervently for them in prayer. The goal of his prayer was that they would stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. (to read the entire devotional, please click here.)
