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 (NASB)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse
Having trusted Christ for salvation we are to walk in spirit and truth. We are to conduct our lives in a manner that is well-pleasing to the Father – we are to be holy for the Lord our God is holy. We are to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ – and we are to abide in Him and He in us
We are to establish, strengthen and build-up our faith in our Lord Jesus, through Whom we have received forgiveness of sins and life more abundantly. We are to feed on His Word and study to show ourselves approved, in order that we may grow in grace and mature in the faith – once delivered to the saints, as based on the apostolic teaching.. with Christ as the Corner Stone.
We are to be rooted in the Word of God and thoroughly grounded on the truth of the Scripture – by faith in the only begotten Son of God. We are to establish God’s Word of truth in our heart and to reckon it to be true so that we may live our lives in submission to the Holy Spirit of God – by faith in our Savour, Jesus Christ… with thanksgiving in our hearts.
We are to develop a fervent belief and committed trust in God the Father – Who has given us eternal salvation by grace through faith and we are to walk in spirit and truth so that in Him we will be abundantly furnished with an unshakable and established trust, which will overflow in thanksgiving and praise to our heavenly King.
Loving Lord we worship and praise You for the truth of Your world. May my roots grow deeply into Christ and may my life be founded in Him alone. Help me to grow strong in the truth of Your word and may I overflow with thankful praise and humble worship for Your manifold goodness and loving-kindness to me and to all people, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN
