Col 1: 10 To walk worthily of the Lord to please Him in all
things, bearing fruit in every good work and growing by the
full knowledge of God,
Matt 3:17 And behold, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This
is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I have found My delight.

Some think that to walk worthily of the Lord is to be humble,
nice, and generous. However, a worthy walk is a walk in which
we live Christ. We can be humble, nice and generous without
living by Christ. Only by living out Christ can we walk
worthily of the Lord. Christ is the will of God, and He should
also be our walk. A walk worthy of the Lord is “unto all

Father is pleased with the Son (Matt. 3:17). In Galatians 1:15
and 16 Paul says that it pleased God to reveal Christ, the Son,
in him. Nothing is more pleasing to God the Father than for us
to live Christ. Apart from Christ, nothing can please the
The only time we are fully happy is when we are living Christ.
If we are humble or kind in a natural way, we are not happy.

Christ is not only the will of God and our walk, but He is also
every good work and even the full knowledge of God. Once again
we see that Christ is all-inclusive. The more we get into the
book of Colossians, the more we see that Christ is hope, truth,
grace, the will of God, and everything to us.
Praise the Lord! We can please God by taking Christ as our life and our person (because it pleased God the Father to reveal Christ the Son in us (Galatians 1:15-16) : )
