Bible: Col 1:28-2:2

1:28 We proclaim him by instructing 1  and teaching 2  all people 3  with all wisdom so that we may present every person mature 4  in Christ. 1:29 Toward this goal 5  I also labor, struggling according to his power that powerfully 6  works in me.

2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you, 7  and for those in Laodicea, and for those who have not met me face to face. 8  2:2 My goal is that 9  their hearts, having been knit together 10  in love, may be encouraged, and that 11  they may have all the riches that assurance brings in their understanding of the knowledge of the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 12
