Synchronised with Christ
Colossians 2:6-7: So then just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
God is working on my massively right now. It hurts at times, facing my inadequacy, but it is also full of amazing joy as I push through and feel myself take a tiny step deeper into God’s presence. And this reading from Colossians is point blank awesome!
I so want to live in Christ and was keen to find out exactly what that meant, so I dived into the greek and was blown away to discover that it literally means to walk around with Christ, that is, as we walk about doing life, we don’t do it alone.
And when you walk or run with someone you care deeply about you develop a mutual rhythm, you talk heaps, and you share the challenge.
In the same way I want my rhythm to be totally in step with Jesus, to be synchronised with Christ. And that can only happen when I recognise Christ walking/running beside me through my day and by seeking to be in step with Him.
I also love the idea of talking heaps to Jesus throughout the day, prayer talking, just having a good old yarn. Though I will make sure I do that in my mind rather than out aloud..
And in acknowledging Christ walking/running with me through life I also believe that I am not facing the tough stuff alone. When the path gets hard, He is there to lend a hand.
So Jesus as I walk through life, as I run through my day, you are right there beside me, I seek your rhythm, look forward to our chats and welcome your amazing support.
