Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman


When we receive YESHUA as our Savior we do it by faith! But that’s only the beginning—we have ahead of us a lifetime of walking with Him!

Our verses today states that we walk with MESSIAH the same way we received Him—by faith! This means we put our trust in Him for every circumstance of life!

The apostle Paul wanted us to know how our confidence in GOD grows. “Having been firmly rooted” at the moment of salvation we are planted in MESSIAH! And our roots grow deeper as we anchor ourselves in Him! Through obedience we are built up in MESSIAH!

Then in time, as we begin to understand more about YESHUA and how He operates, our trust in Him increases even through tough times because we have become established in our faith!

Colossians 2:6-7
Therefore as you received Messiah Yeshua as Lord, so continue to walk in Him—rooted and built up in Him and established in your faith just as you were taught, overflowing with thankfulness.

Walking in MESSIAH is a process; while on this earth we never “arrive,” but we are slowly transformed along the way! Trust Him today and walk by faith and not by sight!  Yes! In Yeshua’s Name. Amen. 

With lots of prayers, love & hugs,
