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. It doesn't just take faith to become a Christian, but every day we are in need of living by faith. Being a Christian is not just a one-time event in our lives. It is an everyday walk. Yes, we come to Christ and become new creatures in Him to begin our journey. We set our course for eternal life in Him. And everyday we partake of that life and choose to walk in that light one day at a time, one step at a time. And even if we were to not have anything else to be thankful for, we can always be thankful that Christ has redeemed us and that He walks with us. Never lose sight of the Savior.
