Daily Devotional
September 20
 
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him ...
Colossians 2:6
 
Over and over the Scriptures tell us to walk:

To walk in light (Ephesians 5:8),
To walk in love (Ephesians 5:2),
To walk in wisdom (Colossians 4:5).

And here we are told to walk in simplicity. The Christain life is not a run, not a leap, but a walk. To grow in Christ, to advance in our faith, to claim new ground for the Kingdom, we gotta keep walking.

The banks of a certain river in Arizona called the Rio Rivera are lined with a substance called ‘near quicksand’. It’s almost quicksand — but not quite. If you keep walking on this near-quicksand, you won’t have a problem. But if you stop, you’ll start sinking and get sucked in.

So too, the Christian experience is a walk. If we don’t keep moving, we’ll start sinking. And the way to keep moving is not to seek some deeper truth. The way to keep moving is to walk in simplicity. We received Christ simply, totally, completely by faith. And that’s the way we are to walk.
