6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving
Let us pay obedience to the plain admonition of scripture. Let us demonstrate our love for Christ by the highest allegiance to His Word. For the call is to receive Christ and walk in Him! This instruction is vital and anchors as foundational, the admonition to abide in Christ. John 15:4. It is an invitation to walk with Him always…to stay our consciousness on Him always…to feast our minds, will and emotions on Him always! It is the call to walk in Christ consciousness!
Not sin consciousness! Not fear consciousness! Not lack consciousness!
It is a call to think talk and function consistent with the realities unveiled in the kingdom and Lordship of Jesus Christ! So He says rooted and built up in Him! Firmly and irremovably planted in Christ! This touches on out basic framework of mind…this touches on our world view. Is it distilled from Christ? Is it rooted in Him? If our lives can be described as buildings…what are we building? Is it Christ? His character will and purposes? Is it love, selflessness, long suffering? Justice? Righteousness? Is it Christ?
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. Acts 20:32
Let us commend ourselves to the word of His Grace. Let us give ourselves to the tutelage of the Holy Spirit! Let us be found rooted and built up in Christ….abounding in the same with thanksgiving!
Glory to God!
