So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live your lives in him,
rooted and built up in him,
strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.
As we live our lives before the face of God, He roots us and builds us up in our faith. However, our part is to seek Him with all our hearts.
As we seek the LORD by reading the Bible, His Word, and by meditating on His Word, we grow by leaps and bounds.
God’s Word was in the beginning, it is now, and it will be forevermore. The Word was with God and the Word was God.
If you grasp these Words and cling to them, your life will overflow with spiritual fullness in Christ.
Seek and you will find, ask and you will receive from our LORD, wisdom and greater depth of faith, as much as you are eager to seek.
Part of being built up in our faith includes spending time in prayer, conversing with our LORD in prayer.
As Christians we are relational beings and our God is a God who delights in our relationship with Him.
As believers He becomes our greatest delight in life. We love to spend time with God in daily devotions, and we dedicate our lives to living to please Him.
He welcomes our vulnerable hearts being opened up to Him in a dialogue that is honest and real.
It is so beautiful to see Christians growing into sturdy oaks of righteousness as they give their all to Him.
Visualize what God does. He builds us up; He strengthens us, and He roots us to an anchor sure and firm from the storms of life.
That picture is clear and anyone who pursues God finds strength and it builds us up and roots us firmly in life.
Our part is to stay dedicated to God. We must aim to be faithful in seeking Him daily through prayer and reading the Bible. That is not a boring task either, since God’s Word speaks to us profoundly. It is alive and an active Word!
So in this growing Season with just two days left in May, let us together live our lives in Christ, growing in faith as we were taught, and being rooted, built up, and always, always, always, overflowing in thankfulness.
God’s Word is alive in us!
God’s Word is active and real!
God’s Word strengthens us, roots us, anchors us, and fills us to overflowing in gratitude!
He is alive! We are alive!
