The Apostle Paul was reiterating in Colossians what he was led by the Spirit to say”
Colossians 2 Verse 2 to 4:
“I want their hearts to be encouraged and joined together in love, so that they may have all the riches of assured understanding, and have the knowledge of God’s mystery —Christ.”
V3: “ In Him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden.”
V4: “I am saying this so that no one will deceive you with persuasive arguments”
Did you know we can have ‘riches of assured understanding’
V6: “Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him.”
V7: Rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith just as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness.”
By reviewing these pictures of spiritual progress we see how growing Christians can easily defeat the enemy and not be lead astray. If our spiritual roots are deep in Christ, we will not want any other soil. If Christ is our sure foundation we have no need to move. I f we are studying and growing in the Word. we are not easily enticed by false doctrine.
If our hearts are overflowing with thanksgiving, we will not even consider turning from the fullness we have in Christ. A grounded . growing, grateful believer will not be lead astray.
When a person is born again into the Kingdom and family of Godthey are born complete in Christ.
That is the knowing we should be assured of.
