5/4/17 Thanking God For The Colossian Church

“Because of this, we have been praying for you continually since we first received word of your faithfulness and love.  And in our prayers, we ask that God will make known to you His will for you, and will fill you with His wisdom, helping you to grow in your understanding of His word.  We pray that you may do everything in a way that pleases Him, that He may make you more worthy of His grace and love for you with each new day, that your faith may bear fruit through the work that you do in His Name and through His Holy Spirit, that your knowledge of Him may continue to grow, that He would strengthen you in His Spirit, through His power, so that you might have increased patience to endure suffering joyfully, always in thankfulness to God our Heavenly Father who has adopted us into His family and given us the promise of an eternity of joy in His Heavenly Kingdom.  By sending His Son, Jesus, to die in our place to pay the penalty for our sins, He has freed us from the power of sin and death, granting us entry into His Kingdom alongside His Son.”
