Paul commends certain qualities that have produced fruit in the lives of the believers in Colosse. 

1.  Faith - calm trust in God in the midst of trial

2.  Love - sacrificial decision to put the needs of others ahead of self

3.  Hope - active but patient waiting upon God's promises

Once we are saved life's purpose becomes clear.  God wants to maximize our influence and fruitfulness and satan wants to minimize it. Maximum fruit comes from faith, love and hope.

Walk with the Lord and bear fruit for His glory!!!
