Putting Down Deep Roots
In our Christian walk, we also need to be aerating the soil of our lives and pulling out the weeds on a daily basis. It's so easy to get stuck in a rut. Sometimes, we need to be fertilized with the Word and then, pruned by it so we can grow more successfully ourselves.
One of the key ways we can be deeply rooted is through the Word of God. Within the pages of this book we discover the character of God and who we are in relationship to Him. We learn about our great salvation and the doctrines of our faith. To think that our Creator has provided for us all we need for life and godliness is a great blessing! We cannot begin to love God or fully understand the fullness of His Son's sacrifice for us unless we fill our minds with His thoughts as recorded in the Bible. This is the essence of what Paul was praying for us.
