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.

The call to root ourselves in Jesus is not a call to accumulate knowledge and understand doctrine, its a call to a strengthened faith. As we’ve seen on Sunday mornings, faith is not about mere belief, but belief lived out. John’s challenge has been to prove our faith through our love for each other.

Father, help me make what I learn about Jesus make a difference to the way I live through your Spirit.
