Colossians 1:5; Colossians 1:16; Colossians 1:20; Colossians 1:23; Colossians 4:1
because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities -all things have been created through Him and for Him.
and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.
if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.
Masters, grant to your slaves justice and fairness, knowing that you too have a Master in heaven.
