Published on

The apostle Paul says that he continually asks God to fill the Colossian Church with knowledge of God's will. He tells us that it is the Holy Spirit who gives us wisdom and understanding to know God's will.

We must ask for God's will, listen to the Holy Spirit, discern His will and then follow His instruction to us.
