Daily Lift – February 16th, 2018

Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving (Colossians 2:7).

One must be planted in Christ to take
root. Growth only occurs in well-rooted
plants (Ephesians 3:17). Developing good
roots comes through digging into the meat
of God’s word to differentiate between good
and evil (Hebrews 5:12-14).

The Christian’s foundation is Christ (1
Corinthians 3:10-11; Ephesians 2:20). Being
built up is an ongoing process. True strength
in the building can only be found through
faith in Christ (1 Thessalonians 1:2-3).

Growing and becoming stronger in Christ
ought to produce a life filled with thanksgiving
(Colossians 3:15-17; 4:2). Our mouths will be
filled with thanksgiving (Ephesians 5:4, 20).
