Rooted And Established In Christ

Key Verse

Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving (Colossians 2:7).

Text — Colossians 2:6-9


Deep roots are essential for survival and continued existence of plants, particularly big trees because by them they can continue to access underground water, surviving hard weather conditions all year round. Besides, being deeply-rooted, trees are able to withstand ferocious storms and winds.

Similarly, every Christian who would consistently resist and overcome the enemy’s onslaughts must get firmly rooted in the Word of God and be established in faith. Thus grounded, we shall valiantly quench all the fiery darts of the devil, the flesh, and the world of sin. Any surprise that Daniel, Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego were able to survive the evil spiritual atmosphere of Babylon? They were taught the Word of God from childhood by their parents in Israel and they never departed from it even though they were carried into captivity in Babylon (Deuteronomy 6: 4-7). You can choose to become spiritually immune to all the trending satanic wiles that easily entangle young people of today and ultimately damn their souls in hell. Reach for Jesus and get rooted in Him.


Be established in the faith


The deep-rooted trees overcome the strongest of storms.

Prayer for today

Help me, Jehovah, to get rooted in the eternal Rock of Salvation.
