Main point summary
A constant theme in our prayers should be thanksgiving for the fruit in other believer's lives through the power of the gospel that is preached by faithful ministers.
f We always thank God,
the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
when we pray for you,
since we heard of g your faith in Christ Jesus
and of g the love that you have for all the saints,
because of h the hope i laid up for you in heaven.
Of this you have heard before
in j the word of the truth,
which has come to you,
as indeed k in the whole world it is l bearing fruit and increasing—
as it also does among you,
since the day you m heard it
and understood n the grace of God in truth,
just as you learned it from o Epaphras
our beloved p fellow servant. 1
He is p a faithful minister of Christ
on your 2 behalf
and has made known to us your q love in the Spirit.
