6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
For all who have received Christ and been born again we are to now walk in Him, established in a lifestyle of faith. There are keys to walking by the faith of God that we must know to learn this new walk of faith. Faith is always present tense. Hebrews 11:1 reveals that faith is now (present tense). When we look to God’s Word we don’t see what Christ has done for us as something in the future, we see His Word as already fulfilled, therefore we act upon the Word as if it is so because it is. Faith is the evidence of things not seen, which means we don’t base what we believe on what we see in the natural, we base our belief on what God’s Word says. His Word is the source of our faith so we feed on the Word of God for this is how faith comes. Faith also calls those things which be not as though they were. Faith does not deny the circumstances we see, but we confess God’s Word, magnifying God and His truth instead of magnifying natural circumstances. We do not look to the things which are seen, but to the Word of God, our source of faith. We abound in faith with thanksgiving, always grateful for what Christ has done for us. To walk in Him we must be established in bible faith, for this is how Jesus lived His life here on earth.
