Colossians 2:6-7 (NKJV) 6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
Here is an encouragement to continue on in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior by faith. It is by faith alone in Christ alone by which we are saved. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NKJV). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). And Jesus said “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:7-10 NKJV). “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one” (John 10:27-30 NKJV). “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36 NKJV). My friends, salvation is in a person, and that person is Jesus Christ, God the Son, the Messiah. Therefore, have you received Christ Jesus the LORD? If you have truly accepted God the Son, Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then walk in Him. Continue on in Christ. Continue to walk in the Holy Spirit of God. Continue to walk with God. In Christ there is complete sufficiency, not only for salvation, but for Christian living. For by His divine power God has “given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3 NKJV). My friends, we are to be joined to Jesus Christ in our daily lives. We are to be continuously moving forward in our knowledge and understanding of God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Triune Godhead, otherwise known as the Trinity. The one and only true and living God. We are to be continuously growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We are to be rooted in the Word of God drawing our life’s nourishment from His truths. And we are to be built up upon a sure foundation which is Jesus Christ, God the Son, our Lord and Savior, resting upon Him for all that we need in life by faith. So that when trouble comes our way in the form of life issues and concerns, and in the form of false doctrine, false religions and cults, we will not be moved and the truth of God’s Word will be confirmed in our hearts and lives. And our hearts will be overflowing with thanksgiving for the blessings of God.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
