Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
– Colossians 2:6 – 7
Receiving Jesus isn’t just something we did in the past to secure our salvation, it is something we do today. You see daily we are to walk in Jesus, meaning today we receive his grace. Today we let his peace rule in our hearts. Today we live in light of his love. Today we forgive because we have been forgiven. Today we live with the hope of heaven. In other words, today we receive Jesus, and he welcomes us home.
Many of us live with a yesterday faith. Meaning we look back to what God did in the past. We remember our early years when we were passionate about our faith. We long for simpler days, when peace settled in our souls. We look back to joy we once felt knowing we were loved, forgiven and welcomed by Jesus.
Jesus invites us to experience all these things today because he wants to be our savior everyday. So here’s a question: How would your day be different if you paused right now and received Jesus?
