FOCAL TEXT: Colossians 2 vs 6 ►► “As you, therefore, have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him”~》NKJV》
FAVOURED greetings, Cherished one. Yesterday, we learnt about the need for order and stability of our faith in Christ. Today, our focal says since we have received Christ so should we walk in Him. Thus, after receiving and believing in Christ, there is a life (walk ) in Him. In other words, our Christian life does not end in receiving Christ, it continues to a glorious walk in Him. *This is very important because Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, not the author and “quitter” of it. There is more in Christ than only receiving Him.*
This walk is lived consciously in the revelation of the Christ. It will not happen automatically. It is making up your mind to walk in Christ. “To Walk” as seen in our focal text is from the Greek word “peripateō”. And it means “to make progress in one’s way or to make due use of opportunities” in Christ. It also means to regulate or conduct one’s life in Christ. So walking in Christ requires a continuous living and ordering of your life in Him.
It implies living dependent on Him. It denotes a continuous consistent lifestyle based or established in Christ Jesus. You have to be intentional about this. Do not believe in Christ and later walk in your own ways. That is not Christianity. When you walk in Him, you will enjoy the good treasures in Him. Beloved, have you received Christ? then make that effort to pattern your life in Him. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ always abounds towards you.
Dear Father, I thank You for inspiring in me the energy to walk in Christ as the author and finisher of my faith. I refuse to live in my own ways. I humbly submit to pattern and live dependently on Jesus Christ all my life. Hallelujah!_
_Pray for the persistent empowerment and wisdom to keep walking in Christ._
