Colossians 2:6-7 Living for Him

There’s a progression that continues throughout your lifetime here on earth. It starts when you acknowledge Jesus as your Lord and Savior; then you pursue your relationship with Him by reading His word, talking with Him, learning about Him, praising Him, thanking Him–rooting yourself in Him. And as you do, you start to live for Him and overflow with thanksgiving, even in the tough times. You bear His fruit.

Colossians 2:6-7 (New Living Translation)
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
 
Why study the Bible this way? If you take it into your mind and heart enough to translate it into a picture or word, it becomes part of you. If you add a sentence or two of explanation, you then engage another part of your brain which cements God’s words even firmer into your heart and mind. If you want to remember it, you can think of what  you drew.
