Continue In Christ Alone
When we understand and accept the work of Christ on our behalf, we are called to move beyond the conversion experience to a lifelong walk with Christ. As Paul tells the Colossian Christians in this week’s study passage, this lifelong experience of walking with Christ will be possible as we become rooted, established, and built up in Christ. This is how the believer can progress from spiritual infancy to spiritual maturity.
Christ must also continue to be our focal point as we walk because there will be many things vying for our attention and seeking to take our gaze off Him. These include human traditions and ideologies. Regardless of what comes against us, we can remain thankful and make bold progress filled with the knowledge of the finished work of Christ on our behalf.
