Whenever we pray, we always give thanks for you to God, the Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
For we have heard of your trust in the Messiah Yeshua and of the love you have for all God's people.
Both spring from the confident hope that you will receive what is stored up for you in heaven. You heard of this earlier in the message about the truth. This Good News
has made its presence felt among you, just as it is also being fruitful and multiplyinga throughout the world in the same way as it has among you since the day you heard and understood the grace of God as it really is.
You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow-slave and a faithful worker for the Messiah on your behalf;
and he has told us about the love which the Spirit has given you.
