Colossians 1:2-3; Colossians 1:12; Colossians 3:17; Colossians 3:21
To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father.
We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.
