"Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude."
During a morning walk, my husband and I came across this tree with enormous roots. It reminded me of Paul's letter to the Colossians. Our Christian walk begins when we receive Christ as Savior. But it doesn't stop there. We need to be discipled so that our faith is firmly rooted. Studying scripture, prayer, and fellowship with other Christians builds us up and establishes us in our faith. All this leads to a deeper relationship with Christ and we come to trust Him with all aspects of our life. The more we trust, the more we realize His trustworthiness, and the more our gratitude overflows. When we walk in Christ, it's a power walk.
