Colossians 1:28  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 11
Paul labored that he might present every man in a spiritual state answering to this revelation of Christ. He knew that union with Christ, realized in the heart, was a safeguard from the wiles of the enemy to which the Colossians were exposed. He knew the unutterable value of this union, and of its realization by faith. He labored, he wrestled in prayer-for it is indeed a conflict- in order that the full sense of this union with the glorified Head might be wrought in their hearts, so that the Christ on high should be in them by faith.
