Colossians 2:6-8 (New King James Version)

6] As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7] rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. 8] Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.

Going Deep

Have you ever pulled weeds and pulled up the whole weed, roots and all? Perhaps you have seen a gigantic oak uprooted and laying on it's side. You see the enormity of it's roots, part of them visible, but a great deal still in the ground. That is the picture Paul wants us to relate to in our walk with Christ. We don't have to wonder where we are in the faith because the Word of God is sufficient to inform us of our standing with God. no one else trusting in anything else has that kind of foundation. Roots that go deeply hold a tree steadfast in the strongest of storms. Go to your Bible and study it, and your "roots" will find greater depths, and you will be the stronger for having searched it out.

FOR TODAY: Thank God for His mighty truth that does not change.

Going Deep, yes that is what I am to do. Great message for today. Great way to start of the new year, in going deeper in the Word, a deeper relationship with Him. Thanks for sharing this!;)
