Colossians 1:3-6

Colossians 1:3-6…”3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people – 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6 that has come to you.” A great litmus test for spiritual maturity is prayer content. It also reveals how we view God. Do your prayers ever sound like this one Paul prayed for other Christians? A focus on thanking God for what he has done in other believers through Christ is a biblical model for prayer. It shows our love for Him and our interest in the spiritual well-being of others. When our prayers ignore spiritual things and focus only on asking God to give us what we want, it shows we misunderstand His word and character.
