29 To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.

God didn’t put His spirit in me so that I could be lazy, apathetic, and half-hearted in what I do for His kingdom. I’m not to try to spread the Gospel. I’m not to teach only if I feel like it. I’m not to invest in other only if I get something in return. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always” Matthew 28:19-20.

You might ask, “How can we be sure that we’ll be successful in what we do?” If God tells you to do it, you better believe that He will enable you to do it. He put His spirit in you to work powerfully to accomplish what He sends you to do. It is our job to content, to labor, to strive, to work, to struggle with all our energy, to not quit until He calls us home, to leave it all on the field, holding nothing back.

God is working in you and for you to accomplish His purposes. If God be for us, who can be against us? We can do all things through Christ that strengthens us. Jesus died for you while your were His enemy. How much more will He do now that you are family?

So, go for it with Christ! Give it your very best! And know that Christ in you is all you need to succeed!
