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. Colossians 2:6,7
I love the encouragement found in this verse for our walk with God. Once we have received Christ Jesus as our Lord, we should walk with him, establish roots in His Word and be continually built up and established in the faith. Now, this is not something that happens overnight, but walking indicates a continual movement. Rooted and built up takes day by day diligence which moves us toward being established in the faith. Instead of being overwhelmed by what we lack in our Christian life, may we strive to WALK in Him, moment by moment and always abound with thanksgiving, that He is right beside us.
