Colossians 2:6- 7 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk you in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
‘As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord …’ Colossians 2:6-7 express the secret of victorious living in Christ. One becomes a new creature in Christ, and if he walks, he will always be safe from falling. One must not only walk in Christ, but he must abound in and continue being rooted, grounded, and established in the faith of the gospel (1Pet. 2:21-23; 1Jn. 2:6).
‘Walk you in him’ – Thirty-two things noted in Colossians, that Christians must do: Walk as when you received Christ (2:6). Be rooted in Christ (2:7) and be built up in Christ. Be established in the faith. Abound in the faith. Be joyful in the faith. Beware of deception (2:4, 8, 18-19). Let no man judge your eating (2:16). Let none judge you in drinking [not allowing alcohol] or your holy days, new moons, festivals, sabbaths. Live dead to the world and all its sinful ways (2:20-23; 1Jn. 2:15-17; Rom. 12:1-2; Jas. 4:4). Seek things above (3:1). Set affections above (3:2). Mortify members on earth (3:5): fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, covetousness which is idolatry. Put off the old man (3:8): anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another (3:9). Put on the new man (3:10-12). Forbear one another (3:13). Forgive each other. Put on divine love (3:14). Let God’s peace rule (3:15) and be thankful. Let God’s Word dwell in you (3:16). Teach, admonish one another. Sing with grace. Do all things in Jesus’ name (3:17). Give thanks to God. Continue in prayer (4:2). Watch with thanksgiving. Walk in wisdom (4:5). Redeem the time. Speak with seasoned grace (4:6).
