Thanks (Colossians 1:3)

Paul is thankful for the Colossians' faith in Christ and love for all the saints. Notice who he is thanking. He is thanking God for what they have done and are doing. He did not try to flatter or build up the ego of the Colossians. Instead, he put thanks where they belonged. He put them on the God who gave them their faith and love as a free gift along with every other work and fruit of the Spirit in their lives (Eph. 2:8-10).
