So Walk In Him

Daily Reading: Colossians 2

 

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. (Colossians 2.6-7)

 

Devotional Thought: Do you remember when you received Christ as Lord?  Do you remember how your desire was to serve him wholeheartedly?  Do you remember how you would have given up anything for Jesus?  Do you remember how you would do anything for Jesus?

 

Paul wrote to the Colossians: “As you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him.”  You may say, “How?  Life happens, and I can’t stay focused.”  Paul gives you the answer right here in these verses.  You must be...

·       In him.  If we are trying to accomplish this on our own, we will fail miserably.  Jesus said, apart from me, you can do nothing.  But if we remain in him and his words remain in us, we can do all things!

·       Rooted.  That means you have to dig down deep.   Storms will come, so put your roots down in the deep soil of Christian service and witness.  Push past the surface things of faith and arrive at the point of total consecration and surrender.

·       Built up.  Who is building you up?  Are you trying to do this thing alone?  You must gain and develop Christian relationships with those who can nurture you, mentor you, and hold you accountable.

·        Established in the faith.  Faith is a gift from God.  We can’t muster it up on our own.  But, we must act on the faith we have been given.  That means you have to stretch yourself. When you respond to what God places before you, your faith is established.

·       Abound in thanksgiving.  Thankfulness helps us keep the right perspective on blessings and on trials. Thankfulness reminds us to always look to God as our source.  And not just be thankful, but abound in thankfulness.

 

Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for your grace that enabled me to receive you as Lord.  Help me to live for you with the same excitement, enthusiasm and commitment as I had then.  Amen.

 

Psalm of the Day: 21.1-7

1 O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices, and in your salvation how greatly he exults!

2 You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah

3 For you meet him with rich blessings; you set a crown of fine gold upon his head.

4 He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.

5 His glory is great through your salvation; splendor and majesty you bestow on him.

6 For you make him most blessed forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence.

7 For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.
