Abide In Christ

From 31-Day devotional by Andrew Murray

“As ye have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him; rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Col. 2:6-7

In these words the apostle teaches us the weighty lesson that it is not only by faith that we first come to Christ and are united to Him, but that it is by faith that we are to be rooted and established in our union with Christ. No less essential than it is for the commencement is faith for the progress of the spiritual life. Abiding in Jesus can only be by faith.
