Colossians 1:1

Colossians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

Paul starts his letters in different way to different churches. Here he says he’s an apostle, a chosen ambassador of God. He was stressing to a church that didn’t know him personally that God had chosen him for his task. One commentator wrote that in this one sentence was the whole doctrine of grace. In John 15:16 Jesus said, “You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you.”
