The Walk of a Lifetime

August 15, 2021

The Bible elevates Jesus more, exalts Jesus more, and extols Jesus more than anything ever created. The walk of a lifetime should be centered around Him. A Christian is someone who has walked to Jesus and now walks with Jesus and always walks for Jesus. Therein lies a big problem that we as Christians and as a church face greatly today. Too many people who call themselves Christians have either never truly walked to Jesus or they have quit walking with Jesus and for Jesus, and now they are walking in the wrong direction. Thankfully we have the words of Paul in the book of Colossians to help make sure we keep walking with and for Jesus, even when we’re tempted to stray off the path. Paul reminds us of what a true Christian looks like and what a Christian does with their lives. They take the walk of a lifetime, and this walk always involves three steps.

Guardian of the Galaxy

The book of Colossians says that God is the creator and controller of the universe - a guardian of the galaxy, if you will. And as guardian of the galaxy, He doesn’t need any help. That is the theme of this book of the Bible that we are going to be studying over the next several weeks. The whole book can be summed up in one half of one verse in Colossians 3:11, “...Christ is all, and is in all.” Just as this guardian of the galaxy has control of this universe, so He wants to be in control of your life and mine. He doesn’t just give us life so that we can live, but He tells us how He wants us to live.

Bible Reference

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,
rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,
and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.
