15 That is why since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God's people,
16 I have not stopped giving thanks to God for you. I always remember you in my prayers,
17 asking the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you will know him better.
18 I pray also that you will have greater understanding in your heart so you will know the hope to which he has called us and that you will know how rich and glorious are the blessings God has promised his holy people.
19 And you will know that God's power is very great for us who believe. That power is the same as the great strength
20 God used to raise Christ from the dead and put him at his right side in the heavenly world.
21 God has put Christ over all rulers, authorities, powers, and kings, not only in this world but also in the next.
22 God put everything under his power and made him the head over everything for the church,
23 which is Christ's body. The church is filled with Christ, and Christ fills everything in every way.
