Colossians 1:19-292

The Deity and Reconciliation of Christ (Colossians 1:19-23)

Col 1:19 For it pleased [the Father that] in Him all the fullness should dwell (κατοικeσαι),

Col 1:20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

Col 1:21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled

Col 1:22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight--

Col 1:23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

The Mystery of the Church (Colossians 1:24-27)

Col 1:24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church,

Col 1:25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God,

Col 1:26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.

Col 1:27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Perfect in Christ (Colossians 1:28-29)

Col 1:28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

Col 1:29 To this [end] I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.
