The Right Stuff...Colossians 2:6-7

Pin It
When I study out a passage I often end up drawing pictures with circles and arrows pointing here and there trying to make sense of all the information presented to my feeble mind.  After reading these verses I came up with the following chart explaining the point that Paul was trying to make.

Colossians 2:6-7 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.

I could go on and on about my deep thoughts, but the chart pretty much sums it up.  If you have received Christ you have the right foundation, the right source of knowledge and wisdom, and the right direction for your life. 

This is the truth that they had been taught.  Paul urges them to live it out abundantly and with thanksgiving!  
There are days when I am overwhelmed.  There are days when I am so tired that I can't even think straight.  There are days when I whine and grumble, but in reality there is no reason for my wimpy excuses about why I cannot serve God.  I have received Christ!  
I Corinthians 2 reminds us that the unsaved cannot understand spiritual things, but we can because we have the "mind of Christ".  

My problem comes when my focus is not on Who Christ is, but on what I want.  
I have the right resources and with God's help I can grow in giving thanks for the faith I have in Christ.
