Is that I may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that I may have great endurance and patience and joyfully give thanks to the Father who has qualified me to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. (Taken from Colossians 1:10)
