Pray that by the Lord’s grace the saints would have a positive, aggressive spirit in serving the Lord for the building up of the church (Rom. 12:11; 1 Cor. 15:10, 58; Col. 1:28-29).
Rom. 12:11—Do not be slothful in zeal, but be burning in spirit, serving the Lord.
1 Cor. 15:10—But by the grace of God I am what I am; and His grace unto me did not turn out to be in vain, but, on the contrary, I labored more abundantly than all of them, yet not I but the grace of God which is with me.
1 Cor. 15:58—Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Col. 1:28-29—Whom we announce, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom that we may present every man full-grown in Christ; for which also I labor, struggling according to His operation which operates in me in power.
