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. Colossians 2:6-7 (ESV)
You have received me into your life. I am your Savior and Lord. That’s right. What does receiving me as your Savior and Lord mean to you? You have given me a new life to live. My old life is dead and gone. Now I will live my life with and for you. I will live as you lived. I will walk as you walked. My new life will look and be completely different from my old life. I am a changed person on the inside and out. Yes, you are.
Keep walking with me. I will be working in and through you as you follow me. It is true that you were made new on the first day that you received me into your life. You were set apart for my purposes. But, my work in and through your life will be ongoing and new everyday. Yes, Lord I will walk close to you. I will follow you wherever you lead me. I will do whatever you ask of me.
Let your roots grow deep in me. Receive your nourishment from me. Drink deeply of all that I have for you. Come to me for all that you will need. Your journey through life will be exhausting. Let me revive and refresh your life. Come to rest in my presence. Let me restore your soul. Yes, Lord I will draw near to you. I know that you will also draw near to me. Yes, I will draw near to you.
Make me the sure foundation of your life. Let yourself be built up in me. Build your life on my word. Listen attentively to all that I have to say to you. Don’t be distracted. Don’t be swayed. Don’t follow after the world and all that it has to offer. Don’t allow yourself to race after what will not satisfy or sustain you. Don’t seek security in what will never bring you peace. Trust in me. I will guard and guide you through life. I am your future and your hope. One day you will come to live forever in heaven with me. Yes, I will. I look forward to that day.
Let me establish you in your faith. Trust in me through all the storms of life. Hang on to me. I will hang on to you. I will never let you go. I will never leave you. I will never forsake you. You are my child. I have you in the palm of my hand. Take refuge in me. Have faith in me. Yes Lord, all my faith is in you. I will hang on to you. I will take refuge in you. You are my shelter in every storm. Yes, I am.
Lord, I am so thankful for who you are and all that you have done for me. You are so good to me. My life is overflowing with thanks and praise to you. You are my Savior and Lord. I am yours. You are mine. Yes, I am.
Lord, thank you for all that I have received in you. You have helped me to remain vitally connected to you. You have made it so my faith could be rooted, established and strengthened as I live my life with and for you. I will keep on following you. Amen
