Colossians 2:6-7 (NIVUK)
6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

So often in our personal Bible study we read these verses asking what do they say to me. Note, however, that these verses are written not to an individual but to a community – it’s in the plural. Rooting ourselves in Jesus is something that we do as a family. Only together can we truly know and follow him.

Lord, thank you for our family, the church. Help me to encourage and find encouragement in your people.
