One of my daughters has Type 1 diabetes. Her regular clinic visits always focus on one number, her HbA1c. The lower the better. If it’s lower, the medical staff ask her “What did you do differently to make this improvement?” The basic idea is, “Whatever you’ve been doing, let’s keep doing it. As you’ve begun, so continue.”
The same idea applies to progress in our spiritual lives. We want to ask, “How did I begin to know Jesus?” so that we then say, “As I began, so let me continue.” So, how did we begin with Jesus? With the Apostle Paul’s help in Colossians 2:6-7, today we’re going to look at how we began with Christ in order to learn how to go on with Christ.
