Rooted and Growing
How strong Is your faith? When a seed is planted in the ground, it needs nourishment for it to grow. Before the seed turns into a colossal tree, it needs to grow and take root in the soil. The deeper the roots go into the ground, the more grounded and stable the tree will be. This same analogy applies to Christians. We need to be rooted and growing in God's Word. The world, false teachings, and the devil is always trying to shake your faith, and if you aren't firmly rooted and growing, then the world will blow you away. It's essential to be soaking in the Word of God daily so that your faith will be rooted stronger, and so that we will grow as Christians. You don't want to become uprooted when the storms of life come your way. God wants to help you and be the that solid rock for you, but you must first take root in Him and His Word.
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Colossians 2:6-7 (KJV)
