Colossians; The Power to Endure with Joy – The theme of this letter can be expressed by these words which are part of the apostle’s introductory prayer for the Colossian Christians: May you be strengthened with all power [that is why he wrote the letter], according to his glorious might [that is the subject of the letter to the Colossians]. {Col 1:11a RSV}
