Colossians 2:6-7: So walk in Him

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[b] with thanksgiving.  Colossians 2:6-7

We are called to be rooted and built up in Jesus Christ.  We are called to walk in Him.  All of this points to a daily intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  There are many things in this world that will try to steal our time and attention.  There are many things that desire to take a seat upon the throne of our hearts.  But there is only one who deserves the throne of our hearts and His name is Jesus Christ.

We have been established in Christ through faith.  It is not based upon works, behavior, nor performance.  It is based upon grace and faith alone.  When we come to understand this fundamental truth of Christianity we will come to rest in the finished work of Christ.  We will stop striving and simply draw near to Him.

There are some who have a false understanding of Christianity.  They believe their standing before God and His love for them is based upon their works.  This is not biblical, nor is it truth.  If anything was based upon our works then that means the finished work of Christ was all for nothing.  But there is only one who could save us and His name is Jesus.  He is above all and is supreme.  May we draw near and fix our hearts upon Him.  He is returning soon.
