View In My Bible
4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love1 you have for all the saints2-- 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope3 that is stored up for you in heaven4 and that you have already heard about in the word of truth,5 the gospel 6 that has come to you. All over the world6 this gospel is bearing fruit7 and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth. 7 You learned it from Epaphras,8 our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister9 of Christ on oura behalf, 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.10 9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you,11 we have not stopped praying for you12 and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will13 through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.14 10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy15 of the Lord and may please him16 in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,17 11 being strengthened with all power18 according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience,19 and joyfully 12 giving thanks to the Father,20 who has qualified youb to share in the inheritance21 of the saints in the kingdom of light.22 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness23 and brought us into the kingdom24 of the Son he loves,25 14 in whom we have redemption,c26 the forgiveness of sins.27
