29 Whereunto [eis][hos] I [kopiao] also [kai]labour, [kopiao] striving [agonizomai] according to [kata] his [autos] working, [energeia] which [ho]worketh[energeo] in [en] me [emoi] mightily [en]. [dunamis]KJV-Interlinear
29 And for this purpose also I
labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me. NASB
It is for this purpose,
the teaching and dissemination of the word of God, that Paul has dedicated his
Paul does not do it by
means of his own power or ability, but by the power of God within him.That power anchored in doctrine which Paul
has learned, and applied, and grown up with these past couple of decades of his
life, is the source of his success.
Paul started out his
life, on the wrong foot.He at first saw
his life as promoting the Levitical principles, which
led him to horrendous persecutions of Christians.But his meeting face to face with Jesus set
Since that time, Paul
pursued an intense education from the scriptures, and learned daily from what
the apostles taught him from what Jesus had taught them, and Paul excelled
tremendously to the point that he traveled and taught and wrote to many hundreds
and thousands of people in his day.
And through his
writings, many billions have benefited through these many centuries.
God chose the right
person for the right job in his time in history.Despite Pauls
messed up start in life, doctrine turned him around and that resulted in
phenomenal benefit for both you and me and many billions since his time.
God provided Paul with
many people who contributed to and supported his ministry.From financial aid to social aid, to
educational aid, to nearly every kind of service imaginable, God provided Paul
with the necessary help to make his ministry successful, and thus promote the
gospel and doctrine to untold billions of people.
Paul was used by God,
because Paul was prepared.God placed
Paul into history, because Paul was the right person for that time in Gods plan.
Likewise, God chose and
placed you into history at the time of your birth and during these past years
or decades, because you were the right person for the intended functions God
expects of you.
Paul could have been
negative and ignored all of his potential, but He was positive toward doctrine
and his life resulted in huge success.
You are no different
than Paul.Doctrine made Paul, not
Paul.Doctrine will make you, not you.
God has plenty of
wealth to spread around in this universe and heaven.Even if in eternity He gave a galaxy to every
individual for a possession, there would be many trillions of galaxies left
over.The potential of Gods blessings has no limit, and that is something that you
should take note of.
God placed you into
history now, and God placed many other people around you at this time in history
to provide support for your life, directly and indirectly, in many different
ways.Likewise, God placed you here, so
that you could contribute either directly or indirectly, to the support of
We are all different, and
we all have unique plans for our life.But, God gives us all time and opportunity, and doctrine, to discover
what our options and obligations are in life.
We can either accept
them, reject them, find excuses for avoiding them, or ignore them, and the
repercussions of our blessings (or lack of them) in life, will follow our
For those who pursue
their temporal priorities in life, while ignoring doctrine or pretending
observance of doctrine, their immediate satisfactions will be short lived,
never fulfilling, and soon turned into disappointment and heartache.
For those who get their
priorities in doctrine right, regardless of their circumstances in life, accept
their responsibilities in life, recognize Gods plan for themselves as well as
for others and their role directly or indirectly, with regard to others, will
discover inner peace, and happiness in this life as well as phenomenal
blessings in the next.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
