plants, crops, flowers, and even weeds are rooted in soil. you know what i mean...the roots go deep into the soil, holding on for dear life. knowing that the soil is what helps sustain them. it's a necessary part of their life. they don't want to let go of it.
"so then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." colossians 2:6-7
it's an interesting choice of words paul has in this letter to the colossians. why of all words did he choose...rooted?
i think he did so for that perfect analogy,
the visual of really being rooted in Christ.
grabbing ahold of Him for dear life
and not wanting to let go.
