Plant Your Roots Deep


The definition of root is (botany) the usually underground organ that lacks buds or leaves or nodes; absorbs water and mineral salts; usually it anchors the plant to the ground.

What do roots do? They grab the soil and hang on or dig in and won’t let go.  They keep going deeper and deeper seeking  better nutrients. We should be like the roots. Christ  is that soil and we need to plant our roots deep in the soil so that we can’t be removed.  The deeper we are in Christ or seek after Him the better nutrients we get out of the Word and from Him. It is a never ending process. We must continue to grow as the roots do. If we stop we will die off and be pulled out just like a plant that roots have died.

There are three major functions of roots:

1) absorption of water and inorganic nutrients

2) anchoring of the plant body to the ground

3) storage of food and nutrients.

Here are the 3 ways we can relate to the roots:

1) Accept Jesus in our hearts and absorb  Him and His Word ( He is the Living Water)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Much fasting …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… and much prayer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)Reading , Studying, and Memorizing  the Bible ( the Word of God)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colossians 2:6-15 (NLT)

6And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him.

7Let 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.

8Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.

9For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.

10So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

11When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. Christ performed a spiritual circumcision—the cutting away of your sinful nature.

12For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.

13You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.

14He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

15In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.
