As we approach the beginning of the 21st century, how should we view earthly life and how should we conduct ourselves before a watching world…in the presence of the one and only true and living God? Let us consider this…
Keep your roots down...and deep into the intimacy of God.
There the roots find water - the Spirit of the living God and food - the Son of God.
Both water and food are found where the tree is planted.
Therefore, Blossom where you are, living one day at a time and entrust our whole personal, family and church life to Him who created and holds the universe together!
"I will be like the dew to Isreal; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots; his young shoots will grow. His splendour will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon.... I am like a green pine tree; your fruitfulness comes from Me."
"....And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge...that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19
"I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." Revelations 22:16
"Believe Me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem ...the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. God is spirit...."
