Colossians 2- Walk In Christ

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7

When you become Born Again in Christ, it’s not just a one-time decision, it’s a daily walk. As Paul says “You have received Christ Jesus, so walk in him” This is not about joining a club or labeling yourself a “Christian”, this is a total transformation of your life. This is about denying to your old self and becoming totally transformed in Christ

As the scripture says “Rooted and built up in him (Christ)” Our entire life is built upon Jesus Christ. The foundation of our faith is built upon the Rock, The Lord. Whatever storm comes in our life, we are rooted in Christ, whatever trial or tribulation, we are built on the solid ground of Christ alone

Part of the walk, is learning and growing in Christ. As Paul says “stabilized in the faith, as you have been taught”. We build our faith upon the foundational truths and doctrines of Christianity. Christ died, Christ is Risen, and Christ will come again, all our hope is the Risen Lord

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: Colossians 2:8-10

Paul reveals two foundational truths about Christianity here, God is Triune and Jesus is God. As Paul says “For in him (Christ) dwells ALL fullness of the Godhead (Trinity) bodily. What is the Godhead? It’s describing the Triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) (Matthew 28:19) 

Paul gives the warning “beware lest any man spoil or take captive through philosophy or vain deceit. Part of your Christian walk is not departing from the foundation teachings you have been given through the Bible. Many false prophets will come and say Jesus is not God or God is not Triune, beware of their philosophy or false doctrine. 

Walk in Christ, and Christ will walk in you. When your Born Again, the Holy Spirit, the living God lives inside of you. Walk in a manner worthy of The Lord, Amen!
