This post come from November 2013:
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” – Colossians 2:6-7
God tells us to be rooted in Him. If we have faith in Him and live our lives in Him, then we will we grow and be filled with joy and love.
When we are rooted in Him, we are like the tree in the ground that is rooted in the ground.
The tree is strong, stable, and healthy. It is nourished by the water and nutrients in the ground, and it thrives. The sun shines down on the tree and gives it complete strength. The branches reach out to the sky.
So too, our we. We are strong, stable, and healthy being rooted in God. We are nourished completely and we thrive in Him. We reach out to God in praise and thus He gives us complete strength and happiness.
Just think, your life is stable only through God. Be rooted and nourished in Him and give thanks!
