About This Message

 

Three Gratitude Goals

1.   I Should Be Grateful Beyond My Circumstances

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints 5 because of the hope reserved for you in heaven. 
Colossians 1:3-5 (CSB)

2. I Should Be Grateful for the Growth of the Gospel

You have already heard about this hope in the word of truth, the gospel 6 that has come to you. It is bearing fruit and growing all over the world, just as it has among you since the day you heard it and came to truly appreciate God’s grace.
Colossians 1:5-6 (CSB)

3. I Should Be Grateful for Godly Leadership

You learned this from Epaphras, our dearly loved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, and he has told us about your love in the Spirit.
Colossians 1:7-8 (CSB)

For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Colossians 1:9 (CSB)
