I remember a tree in our yard growing up. At one time it was small enough for me to jump over. It now stands taller than the house. That tree has survived wind, hail, flooding, drought, and even my children. The reason that it stands tall today, is that its roots are firmly planted in the soil. In the same way, our faith needs to be firmly rooted in Jesus.
As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
Grow strong in the Lord. Like that old tree, you will be able to withstand the storms. Your roots will not only help you stand firm, but they will nourish you and supply the food it takes for you to grow stronger in your faith.
