“We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works with me” (Colossians 1:28-29).
The only work that gives meaning to life is that done in such a way as to give glory to our Lord. It is to this end that we labor. To “labor” is a word of very strong meaning—working to the point of exhaustion. While it may seem an impossible task, the good news is the same Spirit that empowered the Apostle Paul empowers you and me to no lesser degree.
