So Walk in Him

So 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  and King?     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  and King.

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.”
