Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 1:11

_ _ Greek, “Being made mighty with (literally, ‘in’) all might.”

_ _ according to his glorious power — rather, “according to the power (the characteristic of ‘His glory,’ here appropriate to Paul’s argument, Ephesians 1:19; Ephesians 6:10; as its exuberant ‘riches,’ in Ephesians 3:16) of His glory.” His power is inseparable from His glory (Romans 6:4).

_ _ unto all patience — so as to attain to all patient endurance; persevering, enduring continuance in the faith, in spite of trials of persecutors, and seductions of false teachers.

_ _ long-suffering — towards those whom one could repel. “Patience,” or “endurance,” is exercised in respect to those whom one cannot repel [Chrysostom].

_ _ with joyfulness — joyful endurance (Acts 16:25; Romans 5:3, Romans 5:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 1:9-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 1:11

Strengthened unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness — This is the highest point: not only to know, to do, to suffer, the whole will of God; but to suffer it to the end, not barely with patience, but with thankful joy.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Colossians 1:11

(3) Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with (g) joyfulness;

(3) The gift of continuance is not from us, but it proceeds from the power of God, which he freely gives us.

(g) It must not be unwilling, and as it were drawn out of us by force, but proceed from a merry and joyful mind.
