Colossians 1:13-23 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
13 He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves. 14 We have redemption,[a] the forgiveness of sins, in Him.
The Centrality of Christ
15 He is the image of the invisible God,
21 Once you were alienated and hostile in your minds because of your evil actions. 22 But now He has reconciled you by His physical body[d] through His death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him— 23 if indeed you remain grounded and steadfast in the faith and are not shifted away from the hope of the gospel that you heard. This gospel has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and I, Paul, have become a servant of it.
