And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 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 2:6-7
Plant Your Roots
Salvation is not the end for the Christian. It is only the beginning. Too many times we lead someone to the Lord, and then we let them figure it out on their own after that. Christians must take those who have just come into the faith and help disciple and develop them so they will continue to grow in the Lord.
Just as a new plant continues to grow and its roots continue to plant themselves deeper into the ground, so the new Christian must plant themselves in the Lord and continue to grow in Him. If the new believer never then they will crumble under pressure and persecution. With strong roots and a firm foundation, the believer will be able to stand firm in Christ. plants roots and grows, then no matter what comes their way.
A Prayer to Remember
May my roots plant deep in you, and may I lead others to plant their roots in you as well. Amen.
