Colossians 1:29



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 life.


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 him straight.


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 others.


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 decisions.


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.
