How Deeply Rooted Are You In Christ?

The lesson of the “Parable of the Sower” describes the importance of being deeply rooted in the Word. “Those on rocky ground are the ones who receive the Word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while but fall away in times of testing.” (Luke 8:13)

How many people do you know received the truth with joy, but they were not rooted deeply to remain in the fold when temptations arose?

One cannot be the bride of Christ and the girlfriend of Satan straddling the fence with one foot in the Word and one in the World. “The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but later are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.” (Luke 8:14)

“But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the Word, retain it and by persevering produce crop.” (Luke 8:15)

Who is the blessed person deeply rooted in Christ? Blessed is the [person] that walk not in the counsel of the ungodly but delight and meditate day and night in God’s laws. When we do this, we shall be like trees planted by rivers of water bringing forth fruit in season and producing leaves that do not wither; but prosper. (Psalm 1:1-3)

  1. My roots run deep my friend. There were times I did not rely on them. But time and time again, I know the root of true love. I’ve been very busy and apologize for not “seeing” you. Have a blessed Sunday dear friend. Love and hugs~❤️

    1. Good morning, I have no doubt we all have experience(d) not relying on biblical nourishment provided to our deeply planted roots. Busy—understand. I am still making rounds to fellow bloggers’ sites and it is taking much longer than expected. Blessings to you, friend and be safe. 🤗
