6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught,and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7
We are called to live in Christ. This means day by day we walk with Him and we live in Him. It is not a one time decision but a daily decision to follow Christ. We have temptations and challenges we face on a daily basis, but we are called to forsake all things for Jesus Christ.
We are rooted and built up in Jesus Christ. He is our unshakable foundation. As we grow in Him each day as we study His word and spend time in prayer, our roots grow deeper and deeper in Him. We move from being a mere sapling to becoming a mighty oak in Christ.
We are strengthened in faith. It is faith that is our shield in the armor of God. As we come to know and understand who we are in Christ and all that Jesus has accomplished for us we live in thankfulness and contentment on a daily basis. We see the world as the Lord sees all things and our hearts and minds become one with Him. The more we grow in Him the more we are rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus. We become unshakable because He is unshakable.
