Colossians 1

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,

To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;

Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

  1. Colossians 1:13-14,27
    [13]For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son,
    [14]who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

    Thank you Jesus for bringing us out of darkness and into your light and thank you for forgiving and loving us. You are the light of the world.

    [27]For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

    Others need to know about the goodness of God and his glory.

  2. 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

    17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

    18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

  3. This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.
    Colossians 1:6 NLT

    We are on the same mission as Paul and the Apostles. Putting the Good News all over the world by sharing it every where we go.if we are on the same mission, we carry the same anointing they did. It is that simple. We are called to do what he called his disciples to do in person

  4. Colossians 1:6 (NLT)
    This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.”

    This Same GOOD NEWS – the GOSPEL – that came to us, and we understood (the Truth about God’s Wonderful GRACE) and received, is still Going Out All Over The World, Bearing Fruit, and Changing Lives Today!!

    I pray everyday for all Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers, and Evangelists, (and for all saints), who are out there (All Over The World) Sharing, Witnessing, and Testifying about the GOOD NEWS – the GOSPEL. I pray that IT would Bear Fruit and Change Lives.

    St. Mark 16:15, “And He said unto them, GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, and PREACH THE GOSPEL to Every Creature.”

    Be GREATER!!

  5. The Living Bible vs: 3-4
    Whenever we pray for you, we always begin by giving thanks to God the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we have heard how much you trust the Lord , and how much you love the people.

    I thank when we pray ever day we should pray this for all the Saints and new people and 1st time guess.
    We as believers (Saints) This meaning is (believers or Christians).

  6. I am happy to suffer for you now. In my body I am completing whatever remains of Christ’s sufferings. I am doing this on behalf of his body, the church. I became a servant of the church when God gave me the work of telling you his entire message.
    Colossians 1:24‭-‬25 GW

    https://bible.com/bible/70/col.1.24-25.GW

    Hallelujah! I believe what Paul is saying here is that he is able to further the work of Christ and the suffering He endured for it!
    We may not be in jail like Paul but we too are called to further the work of Christ and advance the Kingdom of God!! Kingdom work is not comfortable. It challenges us. It stretches us. It’s sacrificial.

  7. Verses 13-14 MSG “God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.” We don’t have to keep repeating the same old ways of our past or from generations before; but rather begin your own generation of change and enlightenment. Verses 26-29 say “This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less. That’s what I’m working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me.” So be basically GREATER!

    • I learned Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, then Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: then Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
      The end.

  8. Colossians 1:6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world, and bringeth forth fruit,as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth.
    I thank God for your word and your truth.
    I pray everyday for people to give there lives to you ,so that they can bear your fruit.
    I thank you for all the new babies being born again and the first time quest.
    I thank God for my pastor and sis watts and my church family.
    In Jesus name lives are going to be changed.

  9. 10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
    11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

    This cannot be obtained without a relationship with GOD!!! IT IS A PROCESS , sometimes a long one but sometimes it can be instantly!!! It is only as hard as we make it to be!!! Obedience , submission are imperative!!!

  10. 16 NKJV “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”
    ‭‭
    Hebrews‬ ‭1:2‬ ‭NLT “And now in these final days, He has spoken to us through His Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son He created the universe.”
    ‭‭

  11. 24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:

    Every good work we do, in our service to our church is building of the body of Christ.

  12. 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

    As sons of Adam, we were not fit to enjoy the glories of heaven. In fact, if unsaved people could somehow be taken to heaven, they would not enjoy it, but would rather be in the deepest misery. Appreciation of heaven requires a fitness for it. Even as believers in the Lord Jesus, we do not have any fitness for heaven in ourselves the only title to glory which we have is found in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    AL.M.A.S.

  13. “who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”
    ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Our hearts desire is to reach for S. O. U. L. S. GOD has given us another day. A new beginning with His breath in our lungs to go out and let people know about His redemptive love for them. Hallelujah!!!
    I’m honored to be laboring with my brother and sister in Christ Jesus ♥️♥️ 🙌😍🙏

    “praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”
    ‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:47‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭14:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Let the book of Acts continue in our lives!!

  14. GREATER
    HOPE

    27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

    The revelation of riches is not defined by the balance of our checking, savings or retirement accounts. The revelation of riches is when JESUS is in us so REAL that we nothing can separate us from HIS LOVE.

    The evidence of Christ in us is the operation of the Power of the Holy Ghost when we speak in other tounges as the SPIRIT gives us utterance and when we bear or demonstrate the FRUIT of HIS SPIRIT in our daily activities.

    Similar to his message to the Romans:

    Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

    HOPE is REAL and gives us opportunity to see and be GREATER through Christ JESUS. This HOPE is demonstrated through the Holy Ghost in us.

  15. ‘This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. ‘

    Colossians 1:6
    Your testimony will change someone’s mind about themselves. I cant stress it enough. Each of us have something unique about us that brings hope to peoples situation. You’ve overcome something and someone needs to know they can overcome something similar that there is hope that there is a God and that he loves them.

  16. The Kingdom of Heaven is GREATER
    15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature

    The trinitarians declare that “Father” God has a body and you can see him separate from the Son. Well, the Bible declares that the “Body” of the Son is the “Image” of the invisible God. That’s how Jesus could declare to Philip, “When you see me, you have seen the Father”.

  17. 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
    21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
    22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
    23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

    We must continue to stay rooted and grounded in the apostolic faith as we reach out for others to join us in this truth.

  18. Colossians 1

    27 To whom would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

    “That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ.” Colossians 2:2

    To have Christ in us is the mystery of God. Having the Holy Spirit has been the most beautiful and awesome thing ever. I want other people to experience this as well.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  19. 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

    13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

    14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

    God has brought us out of this world to be in His kingdom to be like Him.
    We have to be in prayer and let God change our hearts and minds so we can show Him to this world.
    But more importantly to have a relationship with Him.

  20. 9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

    10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

    11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

    Here we find Paul, praying for those that have come to know Jesus Christ and are growing in Him. Much like our Operation Impact system, continuing to pray until Christ is form. in new believers. Always encouraging, always lifting up, always praying that the fullness of knowledge would come to their lives and they would be every learning and growing in God.

    No one is every to old spiritually for someone else to lift them up in prayer.

  21. 9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
    **************
    We cease not to pray for the city of Ft. Worth and surrounding areas. We cease not to pray for our families. We cease not to pray for our friends. Together as we pray for these lost souls, our prayers reach the ears of God. We are going to see a revival, greater things are coming to the POFW, Our love one are going to be saved. So continue to pray each day and see what the Lord will do. Praise God.

  22. 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

    It is amazing and miraculous that God had mercy on Paul when he was persecuting the Church. Putting people in jail and torturing them to make them recant. Paul became one of the greatest men of God that ever lived. All who are saved have experienced that transforming power of God.

  23. 4For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, 5which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News.

    This is our expectation when we accept Jesus as Savior. We put our hope and faith that one day we will join our God. We have to continue to hear, read and practice the Word. This we won’t lose the faith of our eternal resting place with Jesus.

  24. 9 for this cause we also since the day we heard it
    do not cease to pray for you and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
    — i would pray for people, loved ones
    if there’ll be a need.. i would intercede but to say a prayer like this?
    wow! how often do i pray for someone and ask the Lord to fill him, her with his knowledge, his wisdom
    and specially spiritual understanding? not quiet often
    but this is why i read his word and the point is to read it and learn every time.
    i would also love someone to pray this for me 😊

  25. 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

    God is the creator of all things. Without him nothing would exist. I am thankful for a God who can do all things. He can be a healer and provider at the same time. He is whatever we need him to be.

  26. 10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

    It is our responsibility to obey the Word of God and be fruitful. It is also our responsibility to study and increase in knowledge of Him. We do not have to make our relationship with God a mystical unattainable thing but a God moment can turn into countless God moments then a lifetime and ultimately a eternity of God moments.

  27. 9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
    10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

    I pray that each of us do not ever stop praying for each other, our brothers and sisters in Christ! Pray for each other’s need and to be ever increasing our knowledge, know how, and that we continue to grow in our spiritual understanding of Him and all things Him!!

  28. 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

    17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

    He is over everything in our lives, he does whatever he needs to do for his kingdom. We need to do the same thing in our lives for his kingdom. God let us be kingdom minded and not fleshly minded because your ways are not our ways, and your thoughts are not our thoughts.

  29. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

    Continue firm in prayer. Praye for the saints that Christ gives them knowledge of his will and that their relationship with Him may he strengthened.

  30. 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

    There is nothing we can do that Go doesn’t already know about

  31. “This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to God’s people.”
    ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Thankful for God’s promise being fulfilled and His message being revealed! Through His blood we were given the opportunity for Him to live in us and I am so grateful. I pray we take Paul’s advice to heart and live each day with all the excitement and expectation as when we first heard the Good News.

  32. “For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.”
    ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Thank god for saving me. I once was lost but now I’m found was blind but now I see. I am so thankful for god reaching down and saving my soul. Because he saved me I can now go and tell others my story and tell them about the goodness of the lord. We all have a story to share and should never be ashamed of where he brought us from. We should use that story and show others what god has done and what he can do for them. Never stop sharing your story for his glory. Never stop witnessing because there are people out there who need to hear your story.

  33. 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
    13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
    14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

    Thank You Jesus for brining us into Your marvelous light!
