Faith, Hope, and Love, Col 1:4-6

Many times, faith, hope, and love appear as a triad in a context in the New Testament, such as in 1 Cor 13 (“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”). Colossians 1:4-6a is another place:
4because we have heard.
of your faith in Christ Jesus
and of the love you have for all the saints—
5the faith and love that spring
from the hope
that is stored up for you in heaven
and that you have already heard about
in the word of truth,
the gospel 6that has come to you.
