Colossians 1:24-29

This is assumed to be adapted by Steve Petit, a Christian teacher.

Dear Holy and Beloved Ones,

I want you to learn to rejoice in your difficulties and suffering for the sake of others. In them, you will have a small share in the suffering love I willingly embraced while in my earthly body. And, now that you are My body, I continue to take on these afflictions as you, so I may lay out for all to see through you the fullest and deepest aspects of my redeeming love.

Never doubt for a moment that I have divinely chosen and commissioned each of you to be my cooperative agents in this venture, I have entrusted you with this calling not merely for your own sakes, but to uniquely and fully make known to all others the whole message of My gospel.

Keep in mind there is no set formula of failsafe method for this mission, but neither is it a secret reserved only for the specially enlightened few. I have made an open display of My saving and redeeming love to all My holy ones. Even so, by unveiling of all this will remain as a closed book to those wishing to use this revelation only for themselves.

It is my deepest delight to open and to make clear to you the inexhaustible wealth of this gloriously liberating truth, that I, the Messiah, presently abide within you and powerfully reside among you. This is the key for all who wish to enter into knowing My Father and Me. In this central fact, this vital reality rests all your hope of personally sharing in my glory, of experientially glorifying Me with your life.

Therefore, always and in all ways, I ask you to simply proclaim Me as the subject and content of your good news. Make it your moment-by-moment aim to know Me and preach Me with every aspect of your life. Overlook no one. Discount no opportunity. Lovingly counsel and tirelessly instruct every person you meet according to this declaration (even though it will sound foolish to others at times, especially to ‘religious’ others!) Stay focused on Me so you may be My ever-ready witness, prepared to see anyone and everyone brought into what you have believed and come to know for yourselves:

That all are found complete and perfect, content and pleasing to
My Heavenly Father, only in a oneness with Him through me!

So, with a free supply of my eternally energizing power at work in you, faithfully and willingly enter into My labor of love, the work of spending and being spent so others my come to live by My life as well.

With My Grace and in My Love,
(Colossians 1:24-29)
