Word Filled Wednesday

  wfw-2008smImage0-12

“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.” 

I love the book of Colossians and the rich wisdom that it shares for our every day life.  As all of our actions are rooted in what is in our heart, this is a reminder to keep our focus on being rooted and grounded in Christ.  We are encouraged to be continually moving forward – as we have received Christ – walk in Him ,with a thankful heart. 

By following God’s Word, our lives are rooted in Him and draw strength, peace and hope from the fountain of Him.  As those roots grow deeper, our lives become more fruitful and flourish.  What a beautiful thing to strive for each day.
