Philemon's Love and Faith
c I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers,
d hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints,
that the sharing of your faith may become effective e by the acknowledgment of f every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you, brother.

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other.
Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints.
Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints.
1 Thessalonians 3:6
But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always have good remembrance of us, greatly desiring to see us, as we also to see you -
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment.
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
And have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
