that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit12 and growing throughout the whole world13-- just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God's grace.
For this reason, since the day we heard about you,17 we have not stopped praying for you.18 We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will19 through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,d20
For in him all things were created:37 things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;38 all things have been created through him and for him.39
if you continue57 in your faith, established58 and firm, and do not move from the hope59 held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven,60 and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.61
