Day 284 (number 2).
Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.29 For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me. (Colossians 1:28-29)
Paul set his sights on the goal set before hand. He had a vision of that particular goal – to present everyone mature in Christ. To that end he toiled relentlessly with the energy of the Lord himself.
Lord, would you grant me the energy, passion, and will to make your calling upon my life my toil that I might struggle to that end with all His energy.
