I was reading Colossians 1 today and at the very end of it, there is a verse that I don’t guess I ever noticed before. In 1:28-29 and it says: “We proclaim [Christ], admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom so hat we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all HIS energy, which so powerfully works in me.”
What a difference it makes to do things with Christ’s energy than with my own energy! When we keep drinking from the wells of ourselves, we just keep coming up with stale, empty, worn out water. When we drink from the living well of Jesus, we get fresh water that doesn’t come from ourselves and are able to keep going!
What an encouraging thing to read!
