Growing up Healthily and Fruitfully (Morning)
Colossians 2:7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
For plants, root has many functions. Its primary function is transporting water and nutrients from the soil to the plants’ highest leaves. Another obvious function is to support the weight of a plant, just like a strong foundation for a building. If somehow a heavy storm occurs, the plant would swing back and forth but the root would prevent it from collapsing.
Our spiritual growth mirrors the tree. Spiritual root guarantees our strong spiritual life. The “root” also provides us with spiritual nutrients. It would enable us to stand tall under the heavy storm. We cannot shrug away its importance in our lives.
Today’s rhema emphasizes how important it is to be deeply rooted in Christ. Rooted means having commitments and dedications, because if we are not having those, our understanding of Christianity would be shallow and weak. Deeply rooted commitments and dedications make sure we will grow and then be fruitful. Our church understands this, emphasizes the importance of cell groups to monitor our growth. He gives us the ability to re-establish our relationship with Him and wants us to be a blessing for nations.
DEEPLY ROOTED commitments and dedications make us UNSTOPPABLE and BEAR MUCH FRUIT.
1. Try to assess your life, do you think your life has become a blessing to many people and be fruitful?
2. In your opinion, why do commitments and dedications become the reference to be more fruitful?
3. What will you do to improve and accelerate your spiritual growth?
“LORD, we are truly grateful because we have You in our lives. We want our lives to be blessing anywhere we go. Strengthen and deepen our roots and increase our yield. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
