Colossians 2:6-7 NKJV As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
The Spirit-filled life is living your life in faith. It is all about faith from start to finish. Do you believe that God saved you through Jesus Christ our Lord and forgave you all your sins? Do you believe He sent His Holy Spirit to abide and dwell in you, to help and comfort you to keep you on the path of His commandments to keep you in His righteousness? He is the only One who can help us to walk the obedient life? We must acknowledge Him in everything we do. How can we expect God to work if we leave Him out of our lives? It is only fitting that we include Him within our lives and ask His opinion in what He would have us to do.
The Scripture says, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2:6-7).
We do need to receive these words into our hearts and abide and be obedient in doing what they say. It is no good having faith if you do not obey what God’s Word says. We must be built up in Jesus Christ, He is the One who establishes our faith, and He is the One who has taught us how to walk by faith and not by sight. We should be full of praise and thanksgiving for everything God has done for us, in us, and through us. We are unable to do anything without Jesus Christ. He is the One who sustains us and helps us by guiding and leading us into His perfect will. Yes, we may make mistakes on our journey with Him, but as long as we admit those mistakes before Him, He will forgive us and help us not to continue in the mistakes we make. He is a God of change and as long as we are willing to change then we can become the person He created us to be through Jesus Christ our Lord. We are His creation created in Christ Jesus unto good works which God has before ordained that we should walk ye in Him.
