I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints.
I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints. (v 4-7)
Have I said, "Thank you!" to God for sending people into my life who are an encouragement to me?
Do I tell others that they are an encouragement to me?Am I living my life so that someone would say such to me?
Words...they are powerful.
