Every time I think of you - and I think of you often! - I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus.
There's no end to what has happened in you - it's beyond speech, beyond knowledge.
The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives.
Just think - you don't need a thing, you've got it all! All God's gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale.
