Session 18

Rooted

Read: Colossians 2, Psalm 18

Planting season. It's not for the faint of heart…or those without green thumbs. There is a method and a process to helping small little shrubs, trees, and flowers establish their roots and thrive. 

Did you know that the same is true for you and me? Our roots go deep…to the point of when we first heard about God, His Son, and how much He loves us. For most of us, our parents, grandparents, friends, teachers all helped to begin those early spiritual roots. Our salvation firmly established them. 

As we grow and learn more about Him, expanding our knowledge and our faith, our roots get stronger. And as we grow, we begin to grow UP. Our roots give way to stems, twigs, branches, fruit. 

It is the other blessings God sends our way that help tend to these flowerings: daily time with Him in prayer and reading the Bible, church community with which to worship in unison, and His pruning and grafting through friends and family (and sometimes strangers) who steer us higher toward heaven. 

And we need not worry when storms or ice or wind threaten; if our roots are strong and held firm, we will not be moved. Wind may toss us around, but we remember where (Who) we are from. 

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6–7, NIV)
