“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Colossians is a letter to a small Christian community about 100 miles from Ephesus. There are questions about authorship. It reflects the epistle for Ephesians. Were it written by Paul, it was probably written in the sixth decade, when Paul was imprisoned in Rome. This chapter begins with Paul eschewing carnality, saying we should embrace Christ. And, then Paul writes about the character of the new person.
