Continual prayer (chapter 1)

Paul said that he had not ceased praying for the followers of Christ at Colossae.  He wanted them to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will with a spiritual wisdom and understanding.  Thus, they would lead good lives, worthy of the Lord.  They too would bear fruit as they grew in knowledge, becoming strong and enduring.  They would give thanks to God the Father for their inheritance.  They were the saints of the light because God had rescued them from the power of darkness.  They now had redemption in the kingdom of his beloved Son.
