We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you.
Its good to read of the thankfulness with which the Apostle remembered these dear saints. Paul gives three reasons for being thankful. They were renowned for
their FAITH in Christ Jesus,
their LOVE for all the saints,
and the HOPE that was stored up for them in heaven, through Christs resurrection.
Peter writes about the same resurrection-based hope (1 Pet.1:3-4). This is also reserved in heaven for each one of us, just as it is for those Colossians. How wonderful if we can also display the same level of faith and love in our churches.
