RECEIVE AND CONTINUE


Colossians 2:6

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him." NIV

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him." KJV


Why would the Apostle Paul direct us to continue living in Christ if we had already received Him as our Lord? Christ knows how humans are. We are easily led astray, easily deceived, and quick to become complacent. Accepting Christ is the beginning of the Christian journey. Staying on the narrow path He walked is a lifetime responsibility.


Heavenly Father, forgive us for allowing ourselves to lose our first love and to let our relationship with you become lukewarm. Help us to walk with you as we did the day we accepted you as our Lord and Saviour, so that we may arrive at eternal life with you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
