Pray that the saints would be saturated with the truth to the extent that they can share it with others spontaneously—preaching the gospel to them, presenting the truth to them, and ministering life to them in order to help them experience the Lord (Col. 1:27b-29; 1 Tim. 4:6, 15-16; 2 Tim. 2:2).
Col. 1:27b-29—Christ in you, the hope of glory, 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.
1 Tim. 4:6, 15-16—If you lay these things before the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, being nourished with the words of the faith and of the good teaching which you have closely followed…Practice these things; be in them, that your progress may be manifest to all. Take heed to yourself and to your teaching; continue in these things; for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
2 Tim. 2:2—And the things which you have heard from me through many witnesses, these commit to faithful men, who will be competent to teach others also.
