GROW DEEP ROOTS Print

“Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him.  Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”   Colossians  2:7 NLT

How deep our spiritual roots run goes along way to indicating one’s spiritual strength. The question is how do we manage to sink them ever deeper when all around it seems to be nothing but spiritual hard-pan?

Ironically to penetrate deep our faith must rest on ground that is firm.  This firm ground is our foundational understanding of who Christ is and how we are to follow.  Many who have a sense of faith – or perhaps just a spiritual inkling – believe that their acceptance of Christ is all that’s necessary.  Acceptance should/must lead to spiritual hunger.

Those who plunge deeper gain an understanding that faith grows like a tree-getting stronger and producing more as the relationship deepens.  Favorable growing conditions occur when the heart is opened and our passion to know supersedes all other competing desires!

Determine to deepen your faith today!
