Walk  In Him

Colossians 2:6
As you therefore  have received Christ Jesus  the Lord,  so walk  in Him.

It’s easy  to say,  “Sure,  I’m a Christian.”     And yet,  it can be ever  so hard  to walk  as a Christian should walk.     To walk  as a Christian means  to live our faith  —  to live the truths  that Jesus lived  —  to be assured  that everything Christ said  is absolute truth  because  He is God  in human flesh  —  to know  that no matter what happens  here on earth,  heaven is our real home.     We don’t have  to get all torqued out  of shape  by what happens  on earth  because this is just a temporary place  we are walking through  in order  to reach home.     Everything we see around us now  will soon enough  be gone.

We know  that when we are walking somewhere,  we have a goal  and we progress  towards our goal.     We do need  to be checking our progress  with our walk  in Christ.     Are we progressing  each day  as we grow  in God’s grace?     In other words,  are we learning  to look  more and more  to our Lord  and finding our peace  and rest  in Him  —  no matter what sorts  of troubles  we are facing?

Then,  is our walk  in Him  continuing day by day?     Or,  are we easily sidetracked  with all the temptations  along the way?     We need  to stay  on track  if we have any intention  of actually reaching our goal.     This is a marathon.

Walking  in Christ  implies a consistency  —  a harmony  in fellowship  —  a togetherness enjoyed.     In looking at our walk,  do we just  “sometimes”  enjoy the love  of God  and then,  at other times  forget about our Lord?     Because we are so easily distracted  by everything  the world constantly shoves  into our faces,  we truly need  to hold closely  onto our Savior’s hand  every step  of our way.     We simply can’t afford  to let anything separate us  from our walk  with Christ.

This  “holding on tightly”  to Christ  is called persevering.     James 1:12  gives us a special promise  for holding on tightly  no matter what.     James says,

Blessed  is a man  who perseveres  under trial;  for once  he has been approved,  he will receive  the crown  of life,  which the Lord  has promised  to those  who love Him.

In our walk,  we need  to remember  that Satan  is fully aware  of each person’s weaknesses.     He knows exactly  how to trip us up  in our weakest points.     That’s where the persevering must come in.     That’s where we have  to hold  onto Christ  and remember  that Christ alone  is the Victor.     He is the King of kings,  God of gods,  and Lord of lords  for all eternity.     No matter what Satan throws  at us,  we must always look  to our Savior.

We might really  be hurt  in this world,  but our victory is  in heaven.     So,  let us always walk  in the Lord  every step  of the way.

As we walk  in Christ,  let us joyfully step forward,  knowing that God’s way  is the right way,  and we can say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for carrying us every time the going gets too rough.”

Love,
Margaret
