So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6,7
In today’s reading, Paul is telling the readers that receiving Christ, accepting Him as LORD and Savior in our lives, is the beginning step. What is important is to keep going – we need to think using our faith, we need to walk and talk by faith, staying rooted in what we have received – the promise of everlasting life through the shed blood of The Lamb. Our walk with God needs to be rooted as deeply as possible in that faith , and therefore not rooted in worldly acts we might do, but rooted in Him !!
Let us pray please – Holy God, Loving God – help us LORD to always remember that you are LORD and Giver of life. We were saved from sin and death because of Your unending love for us. We want the roots of our lives to grow deep and strong in You. Guide us to live, to talk, to walk in that deep-rooted faith with you and Your Son, our Lord Jesus, in whose Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
