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. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. (Colossians 1:5-6 NIV)
The message that we send is one of faith and love that springs from hope. Hope generated by the knowledge of grace given to us in a fallen world.
We gave thanks at Easter for renewal. Now we must bear the fruit of that message throughout the world.
