As we saw yesterday, the abundant life is a life that closely follows Jesus.
Colossians 2:6 tells us to “WALK IN HIM and the very next verse tell us how to do this:
“ROOTED AND BUILT UP IN HIM, AND ESTABLISHED IN THE FAITH.”
We can’t build ourselves up in Christ and establish our faith unless we are first ROOTED in Him.
The Greek Word for “rooted” is “rhizoo” and it means “to strengthen with roots, to render firm, to be thoroughly grounded.”
Whatever you are ROOTED in will determine how you think, act, speak and behave. A foundation in Christ must be laid before we build anything else on top of it.
If you’re planted in the right place, you won’t be easily uprooted by any of life’s challenges. Get yourself thoroughly grounded in Christ and become immovable.
God bless and lots’a love,
