Dont sit back, you have purpose in Him
Col 1:2; 1: 28-29
Col 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Col 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
Col 1:29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
Understand that for every person who becomes a believer, we have one general purpose in Him, which is to let our light shine so men can see and glorify God. Just like Paul said, we all have a responsibility to the church to share the Gospel and to grow in it. Sometimes, this may seem tasking but really, all that we need to do has been given to us. From spiritual growth to wisdom to mentors (Col1:28- God has given wisdom). We have all we need, all we need to do is have faith and act; don’t sit back, get up and function- be ready to express Christ and let people see His love.
Verse29 crowns everything up by telling us how Paul was able to do so much work. He said he did it by depending on Christ’s mighty power at work within him; remember in verse27b, he said that Christ lives in us; that same power is at work within us, use it.
#Pray Lord help me find purpose in you, and build for your Kingdom
