“ So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith that you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7
In today’s reading, Paul tells his listeners that they must stick with the teachings they have received from God through Christ, they need to continue to learn and grow in their faith in Him. Giving that up , giving into our own desires and fancies, is wrong. By living this way, you would be “living in the world”, as it were. This behavior ignores Christ. The implication once again is to not go along with the ceremonial laws and practices that exist in the world, but to stay faithful in Christ Jesus and the teachings He brings to us..
Let’s pray together please : Our Loving God, who provides for His children in so many wonderful and beautiful ways, thank you. You continually bring us great gifts, great love and great blessings. Help us Lord, please, to stay steadfast with Jesus, to keep our focus squarely on Him, and adhere to His teachings to us – loving You, loving each other, caring for the less fortunate. We ask all these things through Your Son’s Name. Amen.
Yours in Christ, Rollie
