May God’s grace be with you.
Paul’s Letter to the Colossians
Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen….”
Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.
Christ, the head of the body, holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him.
You must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News.
We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven.
