Rooted

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Colossians 2:6-7; Psalm 1:1-3

"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving" (Colossians 2:6-7).

The instruction Paul gives in Colossians 2:6-7 immediately brought to mind the message found in Psalm 1:1-3, which tells us that a person who delights in God's Word is ". . .like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers" (vs. 3).

We can put down roots in many places, but if it's our desire to live rightly and fully for God ("rooted and built up in him"), we must be intentional about filling our minds with God's instructions for us.

Would you describe yourself as delighting in God's Word? What do these two passages reveal about the importance of regularly taking in, considering, and then living out what God shows us in and through His Word? Tami

Tami, the words “growth” and “growing” came to mind,

Yes, I was looking forward to this morning ready to read God’s Word. May my desire to delight in God’s Word be so deeply rooted that I will grow as I obey what God says to me as I delight in His Word more and more!!

To live out what God shows me in and through His Word! Amen
