Colossians 1:2-3; Colossians 1:7; Colossians 2:14; Colossians 3:4; Colossians 4:3
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,
As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear , then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds :
