Col 1:11 …that God will strengthen you with his own great power, so that you will be patient and not give up when troubles come. Then you will be happy…
Col 1:16 Through his power all things were made: things in heaven and on earth, seen and not seen— all spiritual rulers, lords, powers, and authorities. Everything was made through him and for him.
Col 2:3 In him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are kept safe.
Col 2:7 You must depend on Christ only, drawing life and strength from him. Just as you were taught the truth, continue to grow stronger in your understanding of it. And never stop giving thanks to God.
Col 2:13 You were spiritually dead because of your sins and because you were not free from the power of your sinful self. But God gave you new life together with Christ. He forgave all our sins.
Col 2:18 Some people enjoy acting as if they are humble and love to worship angels. They always talk about the visions they have seen. Don’t listen to them when they say you are wrong because you don’t do these things. It is so foolish for them to feel such pride, because it is all based on their own human ideas.
Col 2:23 These rules may seem to be wise as part of a made-up religion in which people pretend to be humble and punish their bodies. But they don’t help people stop doing the evil that the sinful self wants to do.
Col 3:17 Everything you say and everything you do should be done for Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.
Col 3:23 In all the work you are given, do the best you can. Work as though you are working for the Lord, not any earthly master.
Col 4:2 Never stop praying. Be ready for anything by praying and being thankful.
Col 4:6 When you talk, you should always be kind and wise. Then you will be able to answer everyone in the way you should.
