In the closing verses of Colossians we are introduced to a list of names, a list of those beloved and commended by Paul. And in the midst of those names we find Mark, Luke, and a guy named Demas. We can basically summarize their lives this way:
Mark – started out weak but finished strong.
Luke – was always growing in his commitment to Christ and others.
Demas – started out strong and finished… horrible!
And if you have ears to hear, you can find your spiritual life embedded in the lives of these three men.
