So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, Colossians 2:6 NIV
Some people think that we become saved and that is it. It goes way beyond that. We are forgiven, but have we ever used that excuse to keep sinning? I have, especially when I was younger.
If you are looking for a new and improved Jesus, you won’t find him. He cannot be improved. He is and will always Be. We need to be rooted in a firm foundation of Jesus. He is our Rock.
rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7 NIV
Our Faith needs to be strong. There are waves that will hit the Rock that we stand on and attack us. As long as evil is in the world, it will prevail in an earthly sense. Evil will never prevail in a Heavenly sense.
Stand tall in your faith while spending time in prayer. Spend time reading and meditating on the Word of God. Your faith will increase and no enemy can harm you.
We must stand tall in our Faith so that we may never be deceived. Many will try to lead us astray and if we are not rooted strong enough in our Faith, we risk being able to be deceived. The enemy tries to find cracks in your faith he can work himself into them.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8
As I have stayed before, I am not a fan of religion. Religion has divided people for years and still does. We follow Jesus. It is not a religion, it is a lifestyle.
We must not fall into the hole of religion. We must also avoid the hole that is this “New Age Christianity All Is One-There Are Many Ways To God—-Philosophy”. Falling into these two holes can cause us to lose our grip on our foundation of Jesus.
Let us stop relying on worldly spirituality and the poisons of religion and get back to being the Body of Christ. Forgiven by the Blood. Unified by Christ. Sanctified by God. Amen.
