“Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving” (Colossians 2:6-7).
On the faith side, the Colossians had received Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior. But now, on the practical side, they needed to learn to walk by faith in His power. The verb Paul used here indicates continuous action. We are always to continue walking in Him.
