Subject: April 9th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Whom we proclaim, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ. Colossians 1.28.

How could Paul do such a work? Immediately he explains: “Whereunto I labor also, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily” (v. 29). The word “mightily” may also be translated “with explosive power.” In other words, what God worked in Paul was explosive power, and hence that which worked out of Paul was likewise explosive power. The apostle labored not by his soulical strength but by this divine explosive power. This power exploded within him unceasingly, causing him to strive diligently to present every man perfect in Christ. It is this power of life which enables us to labor more abundantly and strive more diligently.
