Colossians 2:6-7 ” So just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

The apostle Paul’s pastoral style was one in which the Christian life was built upon what was already known. Taking what “is” (the assurance of the Gospel Message & other established foundational truths in our life) and striving towards the faith building we now “ought” to be doing. Our Christian journey should be anything but stagnant…a one and done occasion where we accept Jesus and then coast to the finish line. In John 13:13 the disciples called Jesus both Teacher & Lord…and those Titles still apply today. We are to continually be instructed by the Word and prompted by the Holy Spirit…standing on the shoulders of all the saints that have come before us…with the cornerstone being Jesus as we grow in Him. (Ephesians 2:20-21 – Ephesians 3:17-19 – Colossians 1:9-10)
