Colossians 1:4; Colossians 1:23; Colossians 2:5; Colossians 2:7; Colossians 2:12
Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard , and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught , abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
