For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints,
far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles -
To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord , that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind,
For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.

knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord , whether slave or free.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore , take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
I have sent him to you for this very purpose, so that you may know about us, and that he may comfort your hearts.
