The tree becomes one with the earth when its roots grow deep into the earth. A healthy tree is hard to up root, especially a mature tree.
“Be rooted and grounded in (God’s) love.” (Eph 3:17 NASB) “For love is of God and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God, for God is love. (1 John 4:7)
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:8)
We become one with God as we are rooted in His love. Jesus said, “I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30 NASB)
Of all things, what did Christ Jesus show us?
What then must we show others in our oneness with Him? Anything less is not Him. Our shortcoming becomes our downfall!
Are our roots deep enough? Are we…One with Him or might we easily be blown over?”
A great uprooting is about to occur. In some hearts it is already twisting their tree of faith, loosening the roots day by day, little by little. Love is our only defense and the only offensive God will bless. Where do we find new strength to withstand? We find it clearly in what Jesus taught us and demonstrated.
We must help others to become more rooted right now. We all must understand that this strengthening process is unavoidable for the eternity bound follower.
We become without spot or blemish, holy and blameless, (like Him) as a result of implementing the love commandments that He has personally shown each of us. Oh yes, He applied them from His heart to ours first! We then by His example hold love up against the fiery darts of daily conflicts.
It is to be understood that “fiery darts” actually make our love (toward offenders) GROW COLD!
In a recent word I had for a pastor. The question God suggested the Pastor ask his congregation was, “What are the Laws of the Spirit of Life, since they defeat the Laws of sin and death?” I ask you the same thing. See Romans 8:1-2. You really need to know the answer. Hint: Romans 8:1 is not true for you, if Romans 8:2 has not and is not functioning in you.
Please … forward this post to a friend or a missionary in another country, or in this one for that matter.
From one heart to another we protect each other!
In the guardianship of Christ,
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
