 This is very different from commandments and ordinances. It is the fruit of intimate communion with God, of knowledge of His character and of His nature by virtue of this communion; and, although it refers to practical life, as belonging to the inner life, it leaves ordinances completely behind. (Colossians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 The first principle of this practical heavenly life was the knowledge of the will of God-to be filled with it, not to run after it as a thing without us, nor in indecision, in uncertainty, as to what it was, but to be filled with it by a principle of intelligence which comes from Him and which forms the understanding and the wisdom of the Christian himself. (Colossians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 As in the epistle to the Ephesians, the will of God is prominent in this epistle….in Colossians, it is the practical working out of God’s will in the saints in connection with the truth of the Mystery, so that there would be a present manifestation of Christ and the Church in this world (Col. 1:26-27). (The Fulness That Resides in Christ by B. Anstey)
 “Wisdom”—This has to do with applying the knowledge of the Mystery practically. This is largely acquired through prayer. (The Fulness That Resides in Christ by B. Anstey)
 The greatest safeguard against error is an intimate acquaintance with the truth. (The Fulness That Resides in Christ by B. Anstey)
 “Spiritual understanding”—This refers to having spiritual insight to discern the mind of God revealed by the Holy Spirit. It is acquired through reflection and meditation in the presence of the Lord. (The Fulness That Resides in Christ by B. Anstey)
