Bible: Colossians 1:24-29
1:24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for you, and I fill up in my physical body – for the sake of his body, the church – what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ. 1:25 I became a servant of the church according to the stewardship 1 from God – given to me for you – in order to complete 2 the word of God, 1:26 that is, the mystery that has been kept hidden from ages and generations, but has now been revealed to his saints. 1:27 God wanted to make known to them the glorious 3 riches of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 1:28 We proclaim him by instructing 4 and teaching 5 all people 6 with all wisdom so that we may present every person mature 7 in Christ. 1:29 Toward this goal 8 I also labor, struggling according to his power that powerfully 9 works in me.
