Colossians 4:2
4:2 {1} {2} Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with
    thanksgiving;

 (1) He adds certain general exhortations, and at length ends
     his epistle with various familiar and godly salutations.
 (2) Prayers must be continual and earnest.

Colossians 4:3
4:3 {3} Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us
    a {a} door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for
    which I am also in bonds:

 (3) Those who minister the word, must especially be entrusted
     to the prayers of the Church.
     (a) An open and free mouth to preach the Gospel.

Colossians 4:5
4:5 {4} Walk {b} in wisdom toward them that are without,
    redeeming the {c} time.

 (4) In all parts of our life, we ought to have good
     consideration even of those who are outside of the Church.
     (b) Advisedly and cautiously.
     (c) Seek occasion to win them, even though you lose
         something of your own by it.

Colossians 4:6
4:6 {5} Let your speech [be] alway with {d} grace, seasoned with
    {e} salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

 (5) Our speech and talk must be applied to the profit of the
     hearers.
     (d) Fit for the profit of your neighbour.
     (e) Against this is set filthy communication, as in Ephesians 4:29.

Colossians 4:11
4:11 And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the
     circumcision.  These {f} only [are my] fellowworkers unto
     the {g} kingdom of God, which have been a comfort unto me.

     (f) Hence, Peter was not at that time in Rome.
     (g) In the Gospel.
