Colossians 1:21 — Colossians 2:7
21 And you, though once aalienated and 1benemies in your 2cmind because of your evil works,
22 1He now has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you aholy and without blemish and without reproach before 1Him;
23 If indeed you continue in the 1faith, agrounded and steadfast and not being moved away from the 2bhope of the gospel, which you heard, which was proclaimed in call creation under heaven, of which I Paul became a dminister.
24 I now arejoice in my sufferings on your behalf and 1fill up on my part that which is lacking of the bafflictions of Christ in my flesh for His cBody, which is the church;
25 Of 1which I became a 2aminister according to the 3bstewardship of God, which was given to me for you, to 4complete the cword of God,
26 The 1amystery which has been hidden 2from the ages and from the generations but now has been manifested to His saints;
27 To whom God willed to make known what are the 1ariches of the glory of this bmystery among the Gentiles, 2which is 3cChrist 4in you, the dhope of 5eglory,
28 Whom we announce, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom that we may present every man 1afull-grown 2in Christ;
29 For which also I labor, 1astruggling according to His boperation which operates in me in 2power.
1 For I want you to know how great a astruggle I have for you and for those in bLaodicea, even all who have not seen my face in the flesh,
2 That their hearts may be 1acomforted, they being knit together in 2love and unto all the 3riches of the 4bfull assurance of understanding, unto the full knowledge of the 5cmystery of God, Christ,
3 In whom all the treasures of 1awisdom and knowledge are hidden.
4 This I say that no one may 1delude you with 2apersuasive speech.
5 For even though I am absent in the flesh, yet in the 1aspirit I am with you, rejoicing and seeing your order and the solid basis of your faith 2in Christ.
6 As therefore you have 1areceived the Christ, Jesus the Lord, 2bwalk in Him,
7 Having been 1arooted and being bbuilt up in Him, and being established 2in the faith even as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
