Colossians 2:6–7 (KJV) As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

A. God has given us the responsibility of building ourselves up

B. God wants us to be “Built Up” in Christ

C. Christ is not going to build us up in Himself; it is our job to Build ourselves up in Christ

D. One way to “Build Yourself Up in Christ” is to walk in Him

E. Walk in Him: Do His Will, Obey His Voice, Be Led by His Spirit, Honor His Word, Serve in His Kingdom

F. As you “Walk in Him”, you get “Rooted in Him”

G. Roots always look for the source

H. Roots are the anchor that holds the plant in the ground

I. “Walking in Him” allows you to become “Rooted in Him”; “Rooted in Him” allow you to become “Built Up in Him”

J. People who are “Built Up In Christ” are strong and established in their Faith
