Colossians 1:4-8 New International Version

4  because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God's people- 5  the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6  that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world-just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God's grace. 7  You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant,[1] who is a faithful minister of Christ on our[2] behalf, 8  and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.
