Colossians 2:1-5New Living Translation (NLT)
2 I want you to know how much I have agonized for you and for the church at Laodicea, and for many other believers who have never met me personally. 2 I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. 3 In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 I am telling you this so no one will deceive you with well-crafted arguments. 5 For though I am far away from you, my heart is with you. And I rejoice that you are living as you should and that your faith in Christ is strong.
Dear Father, May I be knit together with other believers and build strong ties of love and compassion. May I have complete confidence in your plan, Lord, which is Christ himself. I know in Christ is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. May I test all things with your Word, so that I will not be deceived with crafted arguments that go against the Truth. Guide me as I practice living the Truth through the Living Word. Build my faith in Christ, for Jesus is Savior and King. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
