ROOTED IN YOUR FAITH
Main Text: Colossians 1:23
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from
the hope of the gospel. Which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heavenly, whereof I Paul am a minister.
Colossians 2:7 – Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanks giving.
The root of every tree in deep inside the soil were it gets its nutrient to grow well, if the root is on the surface it means such tree can be easily blown away by a strong wind, even by mere pushing of a tree will just fall to the ground because that tree is not well rooted in the ground and so cannot withstand strong wind or pushing by a strong force.
As children of God, we ought to be rooted and grounded in the word so that we will not be easily pushed about by evil wind of doctrine. Colossians 2:8 says
“beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the
tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ”.
In this end time there is going to be a lot of false doctrines and philosophies of
men whereby trying to confuse many, only those who are rooted and grounded in the word will overcome.
BE GROUNDED IN THE WORD SO AS TO BOOST YOUR FAITH
Prayer Point: Oh Lord, help me to be sensitive no to be carried away by
philosophies of men.
