Bible: Col 2:1-5

2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you, 1  and for those in Laodicea, and for those who have not met me face to face. 2  2:2 My goal is that 3  their hearts, having been knit together 4  in love, may be encouraged, and that 5  they may have all the riches that assurance brings in their understanding of the knowledge of the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 6  2:3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 2:4 I say this so that no one will deceive you through arguments 7  that sound reasonable. 8  2:5 For though 9  I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit, rejoicing to see 10  your morale 11  and the firmness of your faith in Christ.
