6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
If we have been baptized into Christ, then we have received His salvation, His righteousness, His truth, and the Gospel.
None of these belong to us.
We have not earned them.
Our faith is in Jesus, the perfect One.
The Lord has given these to us this out of love.
However, we also have a duty to fulfill.
We should walk in Him.
This means to grow into His likeness.
To edify and build ourselves up to be like Jesus.
Rooted in the word of God.
That is our source of spiritual nourishment.
We can't grow to be like someone we do not know.
The only way to know Jesus is by His word, the Bible.
So that we can truly live.
Saying what He has said.
Doing what He has instructed.
Following His example.
Being abundantly, overflowing with gratitude always.
Thankful for the gift of being in Jesus Christ.
For in the Lord, we are complete, whole, and content.
We say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Are we flattering to the Lord?
Praising His goodness by acting like Him?
Jesus is the way, the only way.
Walk in Him.
