Keep Struggling

Colossians 2:1-4, struggling for others in Christ
Are you "struggling" for anyone?

We tend to think of "struggling" as a negative thing, but sometimes it's good.

Paul "struggled" with all of Christ's energy to teach people how to live for Christ. His purpose (Colossians 2:1-4) was that they might be:

♥ encouraged in heart 
♥ united in love
♥ filled with an accurate understanding of Christ
♥ safeguarded from false philosophies

Paul was a powerful preacher, admonishing and teaching others (1:28), and not all of us have Paul's gifts or calling.

However, that doesn't prevent us from "struggling" for others.

Paul showed us a way that all of us are called to struggle ... through prayer (1:9).

Perhaps our unsaved neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family members shun our witness. Perhaps fellow believers who are on the wrong path disregard our concerns for them.

But we can still struggle for them with all of Christ's energy by faithfully, regularly praying for them. 

So take time today to "struggle" for someone you know.
