Narration: Colossians 1:9-15

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

We are praying hard for you ever since we heard of your brotherly love in the Lord.  We are begging Him to make his will plainly and abundantly known to you from all sides, and to guide you spiritually;

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

To help you to improve your walk with Him, to grow in your knowledge of Him and His ways, and please Him in everything you do;

 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

And so you will feel confirmed by His soundness, authority, and might, which will make you steadfast, constant, and joyful in each and every situation; 

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Full of thanksgiving to Him who sacrificed His own Son that we might be a part of His family and receive the beginning of our inheritance here on Earth;

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Blessed, beautiful Jesus, who redeemed us with His own blood and suffered for our sins as His own:

 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

Who helps us to comprehend, to apprehend God here on Earth.
