Colossians 1:9-10

I'll begin this section by quoting Colossians 1:9-12 in Rob Lacey's beautiful language.

So from day one of hearing your story we’ve been pushing your case with God, asking him to fill you in on his plans via his spiritual wisdom package. Why? So your lifestyle will ring true. So they’ll look at you and it’ll be obvious you belong to the King. So you’ll make God happy in every category of life- getting on with good things, getting to know him personally because you’re plugged into his power supply, which is dazzling, long lasting, the only high worth having. So you’ll be bubbling with joy- and you’ll know who to credit: the one who’s signed you in for a chunk of inheritance (tax free).

The language employed here allows a unique insight into Paul's intentions...
