SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/29- “Thankfulness Provides Strength And Stability In Our Faith!” (Colossians 2:7)
Premise Question: Why is it so vital and critically important, as well as being absolutely imperative, that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, be deeply rooted and established in The Truth of The LORD?
“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:7 NLT)
Allow yourself to grow down deep and wide, being deeply entrenched, and firmly implanted in The LORD, producing a strong foundation, that will be able to support a solid structure that is fortified and stabilized, by your strong certitude and convictions, that you were taught and brought up in; even, your stalwart belief and faith in The Truth—our Blessed Hope, that causes you to always be abounding in great measure in superabundance, teeming and overflowing with gratitude and thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We must, each one, be willing to be buried in Him, (in order to become “B-I-G” in God, you must first be willing to be Buried-In-God—planted down deep in Him, like a seed that is planted in the ground and dies, but then germinates and is brought back to life to produce a harvest after its kind, so too, must we be willing to die to self, so that we can then produce a harvest after its kind—a righteous one) thoroughly and completely immersed, totally embedded in His presence, being literally surrounded and covered by His righteousness; while growing down and out, initially, in order to create a strong root system that will then give us a sure foundation, so that we can build a strong and stalwart life structure, that will have the ability, strength and capacity to withstand the various trials and storms of life, in order to enable us to mature, by growing up and then spreading out, with hearts filled with gratitude and thanksgiving, so that we can then flourish, having an efficacious and powerfully reaching impact, not only upon our own lives, but the many lives of others living in this world, as well.
All of this will have the glorious effect of producing within us and others, a great and bountiful, successful harvest of righteousness; wherever we go, wherever we are and with whomever we have the wonderful and blessed opportunity to love, bless, help and serve.
Remember though, in order for any of us to grow, flourish and then produce a successful and righteous harvest with our lives, in this life, we must first, for there is no other way, be willing to be planted, buried deep (die) in the ground of The LORD; growing down deep and spreading out wide, so that a sure and strong, solid foundation is put in place, in our lives, that will and can support and sustain an appropriate and divinely designed and ordered structure of The LORD, in our lives, that will surely grow up, flourish, spread out wide and remain, thereby, blessing not only our own lives, by producing a successful harvest of righteousness, which is pleasing to The LORD, but will also affect, in an efficacious, good, acceptable and most perfect way, the lives of many others, in this life. Grow down and out before ever attempting or expecting to grow up and out! Blessings…
