Deeply Rooted = Stand Firm

May 3, 2017

Colossians 2:6-7 NLT …And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to live in obedience to Him{walk in Him}. 7 Let your roots grow down into Him{be firmly rooted} and draw up nourishment from Him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all He has done.

The wind may blow, but those deeply rooted in Christ STAND FIRM forever!

The wind may blow-but those deeply rooted in Christ StandFirm 4ever! =>Be firmly rooted in ChristJesus! #BeThankful
The wicked are uprooted in the wind=>only the Godly have Deep Roots/Eternal Security-They #StandFirm in the storm!

Proverbs 12:3 NLT … Wickedness never brings stability; only the godly have deep roots.

From NetBible Pro 12:3

  • * “a root of righteousness” = stresses the security of the righteous; they are firmly planted and cannot be uprooted – they have deep roots”. The righteous are often compared to a tree (Pro 11:30;Ps 1:3, 92:13)

Proverbs 10:25When the storm{whirlwind} has swept by, the wicked are gone{swept away}, but the righteous stand firm forever{has an everlasting foundation.}.

From NetBIble Pro 10:25

  • * “storm wind” – “whirlwind” is used in prophetic passages that describe swift judgment and destruction.
  • * stand firm = everlasting foundation => this metaphor stresses the eternal security that the righteous have – the wicked have no such security.
