Colossians 2:1-15

“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

8 Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers[a] of this world, rather than from Christ. 9 For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.[b] 10 So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.” v. 4-10

Nothing excites me more than seeing someone come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Their excitement and passion to see other experience what they have is so encouraging.  But sadly, many of them seem to lose that excitement after a little while.  Why does this happen?  That’s a great question and maybe something you have experienced also.

In today’s passage, Paul addresses this very thing.  He says that with the same excitement and passion you accepted Jesus, you must use to continue to follow Him.  It’s not always going to be easy and it is going to take some work on your part, but the truth is, the more you spend time with God in His Word and through Prayer, the closer you will be to Him and the more excited you will stay about your relationship with Him.

Personal Growth has to happen in-order for the things of God to stay fresh and exciting in your life.  Without personal growth, your faith will become weak, and God will seem distant.  Just like a plant needs soil and water to grow, we need the Word of God and Prayer in our lives to grow deeper in-love with God.
