Rooted in Christ

If you are a gardener or admirer of trees, plants and flowers, you likely understand the importance of a strong root system. Roots are the lifeline for trees and plants. They also provide an anchor so that inclement weather and strong winds pass by without uprooting the tree or plant they are sustaining. A strong and mature root system provides for security, stability, and an abundance of nutrients. In fact, the roots become one with the ground, spread and grow so that they support and nourish for decades.

Your relationship and dependance on Christ is just like that. He is your lifeline. He is your anchor and grounds you so that the storms and winds of life that come against you pass and leave you standing strong. He is your sustaining source. When you are deeply rooted in him you have security, stability and abundance. He keeps you decade after decade strong, flourishing and bearing fruit. While rooted in Jesus, you may need to change and adapt to life's situations and challenges much like a plant or tree changes with the seasons. You will find that no matter what Christ is always there for you. You can count on him to provide exactly what you need in any and all situations. Together, rooted in Jesus Christ, you have everything.

"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
