I remember teaching my kids to walk. My wife and I would sit on the floor a few feet apart. One of us would steady our child while the other would wait with outstretched arms. As our child took his or her first steps, we would encourage them, saying, "Keep going, you can do it!" They would take one tentative step, and then maybe another. But they would teeter, wobble, and then go down into their more familiar crawling position to go the rest of the way. Each try would lead to more steps taken until finally they walked into the arms of the waiting parent. In a sermon called "Continue in Christ" we look at Colossians 2:6-8. In these verses, which are the heart of Paul's message in Colossians, Paul tells the Colossians to keep going in their faith in Christ. They started well by trusting in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and now Paul is telling them to keep on trusting him. We all need to hear that message still today.
