Resolute Commitments and Dedications (Morning)
Colossians 3:23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
Arry and Joey are two best friends. They even go to church together and serve in the same church. In the beginning, it was great, but after some time, Arry’s spirit flickered. She does her services because it is her duty, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic made her unable to physically be there. Joey is quite different, her services were not quite successful at first, but she always gets up. Joey sees her services are not mere duty, it is her commitment and she’s willing to dedicate her life to it.
Whether you like it or not, our lives seldom pictured as plants, especially our root system. The root supports the whole tree. If the root is strong, no matter how strong the wind blowing, how much it bears fruit, or how tall it is the tree should prevail. Some ancient trees are known to have an intricate root system that could reach far and wide and deep.
We must have this strong and deep root system. Having roots means we have commitments and dedications. Our church’s vision accommodates our spiritual needs: to save, to merge, to teach, and to send. Just like trees, we need to take care of our spirituality according to our church’s guidance. By following our church’s vision problems will not hinder our progress instead it would accelerate our spiritual growth.
Having root means HAVING A RESOLUTE COMMITMENTS and DEDICATION in our lives.
1. How do you assess your current life? Are you rooted in God?
2. In your opinion, what makes having a strong and resolute root is important?
3. What will you do to make your life be rooted deeper and stronger and therefore could bear much fruit?
“LORD, we want to have strong roots in You. Make us grow bigger and higher and could bear much fruit in Your name. Let Your Spirit enables us to rebuild our commitments. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
