Colossians 2:6-7 Therefore; as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

Just because we’ve accepted Christ, doesn’t mean we’re automatically sold out for Him. We have to make the decision and put forth the effort to live a life where our foundation and our future are in Christ.

This scripture says, as we received Christ, we should walk in Him, be rooted and built up in Him, and established in our belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. How did we receive Christ? By faith. So, by faith (belief in what Jesus accomplished for us) we should walk in Him, be rooted and built up in Him, and be established in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God gave us free will and it’s our choice to apply our faith in this area. If our faith is not applied, we cannot, in our own strength, walk in Him, be rooted and built up in Him, and be established in the Gospel of Jesus Christ; making life a bit more challenging. If our faith is applied to anything else, outside of Jesus, our faith in that thing is destined to crumble.

Jesus is a firm foundation. Isaiah 26:4 calls Him the rock of ages. Let’s place and keep our faith in Jesus to live a victorious life, operating in our authority, and fully convinced in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
