Paul shares that he rejoices in the suffering he has endured for the sake of sharing the word of God in its fullness with the church. The message he shares was a mystery, hidden for ages, but now he’s freely sharing it with God’s people, and this includes not just the Jews but also the Gentiles. How does he do all of this? In his words, strenuously, but not by his might but by the energy of Jesus working inside him. Mike and Ken discuss how what Paul talks about in these verses shows how Jesus changes people and that we’re never alone if we’ve given ourselves to Jesus.
Passage: Colossians 1:24-29
