A Lifetime

April 15, 2011 Donna New

As therefore ye received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and builded up in him, and established in your faith, even as ye were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6, 7

How did we receive Jesus our Lord? By trust, by leaning on Him, sometimes with tears of repentance or grateful tears that wash away years of living without grace. As we received Him that’s how we walk in Him. But however we received Him, He was the focus. It’s not about us, or about angels the focus is Him.

We walk with great trust, getting to know Him by being rooted in Him. And then established in thanksgiving. A side note: In Philippians we were taught to be thankful as a safeguard against false prophets. Here again is the same idea in the verses around this one.

They had been taught how to live in Jesus, how to be rooted and grounded. The foundation of teaching we have when we are born again remains with us through our lifetime. If it is Scriptural and simply about Jesus it’s meant for us to build our faith on. That way as we go through life and need to live on our own spiritually we have the depth and strength to live our life rooted in Him and established in thanksgiving in the teaching that we have had

For the most part all this teaching means is trust Him, lean on Him, rest on Him. Its not complicated but simple. It’s about our first Love and meant to last a lifetime.
