DEVO 10.07.22


"And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him.” (Colossians 2:6 NLT)


- Take a look at the word, “Continue”.

- I have heard a lot of people say, “how do I keep the fire burning?” Or “How do I stay passionate about Jesus?”

- The Apostle Paul gives us the answer here.

- Do you remember when you accepted Jesus Christ as Lord?

- Did you fall in love with Him?

- Were you grateful for all that He had done for you and all that He was doing in you?

- All your sins were forgiven!

- You were made new!

- You were cleansed!

- You were whole!

- And it was all because of What Jesus had done, not something that you had to work for.

- Not something you had to earn.

- It was a free gift!

- And the giver of that gift was Jesus!

- The new life that you had been given, started with Jesus, continues with Jesus, and ends with Jesus!

- It’s all about Him!

- As you accepted Him, it brought joy...

- It brought Hope…

- It brought healing…

- It brought newness of life!

- So the Apostle Paul is saying, “Just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must CONTINUE!”

- He is saying, you must continue to walk with Him and hang out with Him.

- With Him you have everything, without Him you have nothing.

- Be desperate for His presence.

- Spend time with Him through His Word and prayer.

- You have to reflect His character in the things you do and say.

- As you spend time with Him, you will begin to sound like Him and your actions will look like His actions.

- Live a life that lead others away from sin and points them towards true life.

- A life that is filled with His Peace and His presence.

- A life overflowing with His goodness and grace.

- Continue following Him, today, just like you started.

- Live a life that is overflowing with gratefulness and being thankful.

- Galatians 6:9 says, Don’t "become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

- So don’t become weary and don’t give up when things get difficult.

- Let your passion for Him remain as strong as it was in the beginning!

- Let your fire for Him burn bright today!

- Let it begin in you and let it continue in you!

- Have a great Weekend!
