I was doing some studying for my sermon and happened across this verse again.

“We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works within me.”

Colossians 1:28-29

Man, take this verse seriously and you find that you are way in over your head. Not only because the task is so huge, but because of the example that Paul lays out before us. I don’t think this is just written for professional clergy…

Am I honestly as committed and passionate about this as Paul?

Are you?

hmm…

Good question eh?
