As ye have therfore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: rooted and built up in him. (Colossians 2: 6-7)
We need roots in God as we reach for the Son of the life He offers us. Roots are important. When set firmly in place they give us security we need to reach for the Son. But we can't become boggged down in the mud and slush our human lives feed us. We must move on continue to reach for the Son, for the life that God has waiting for us. God is the roots, God is the destination. We need both. Plant your roots deep and reach high for God is waiting.
