28 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)

Father, the world around us toils and labors for so many things: money, popularity, possessions, sexual pleasure, and the list could go on forever.  Help us to be laborers also, but to labor only for that which endures to eternity.  Help us to struggle with all the energy within us to present others mature in Christ.  Help us to proclaim Christ, to teach and encourage and rebuke others in the service of love.  And we praise You that the energy within us is not our own; we struggle with Your energy, that You powerfully work within us.  Energize our hearts today, Lord, for the joyful labor of seeing others conformed more to Your image and likeness.

Larry
