Colossians 1:2-3; Colossians 1:12; Colossians 2:2; Colossians 3:17; Colossians 3:21
To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
That their hearts might be comforted , being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged .
