Faith AND Thanksgiving
In this letter, Paul wanted to teach the Colossians that Christ is in everything and their lives should reflect that. When others watch us, they should see Christ in us. We are His representatives here today and others learn about Him by watching us. Unfortunately, we don’t always do a good job of representing Him.
Paul reminds us that we should “walk in Him” with our faith, everything we have been taught, rooted deep within us. We must be strong in our faith, made strong by our faith. Finally, because of our faith, our strength, our thankfulness should be overflowing.
As we prepare for Thanksgiving and the hectic pace of the Holidays sometimes overwhelms us, it can be difficult to overflow with thankfulness. Take time to catch your breath. Draw on that deep rooted faith. Then go out with thanksgiving.
