Tuesday, April 28WALKING WITH HIM BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH
Colossians 2:6-7, Romans 5:2
Colossians 2:6-7 (KJV)
"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving""
A walk is a series of steps in the right direction. Our walk in Christ is of faith. We make progress in the Lord by faith. We are not meant to crawl in Him; we are to walk in Him. At Salvation, we were born into the Family of God. We got saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). It is a vital principle of God's kingdom that was revealed to us at new birth, that is, salvation came by grace through faith.
It is worthy of note that if Salvation (the greatest demonstration of God's benevolence) came by grace through faith, it follows that God has laid the precedence of how other things of salvation would come thereafter â BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH. The Word of God has shown us how to walk in Christ Jesus. How? It says "as you received Christ Jesus, So walk in Him"" How did we receive Him? It was BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10). The same way we trusted Him to save us by acting on His Word, is the same way we walk in Him.
We walk in Him as we learn to abide in Him by putting God's Word first and then practice it by faith. Keep the Word in your mouth of who you are in Him, who He is in you, what you have in Him, who the Father is to you, what you can do through His Word and the power of His Spirit.
Beloved, act out these realities in your daily life and you will experience God on a new level. Shalom.
