WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD

Are we rooted in Christ?



 Food for thought:

 STATS: The average Christian spends 10 minutes a day with Christ. The average American spend 4 hours a day watching TV.

God doesn't want religious duty. He doesn't want a distracted, half hearted, "Fine, I'll read a chapter....now are you happy? attitude. God wants His Word to DELIGHT us, so much so that we meditate on it day and night. 

In Psalm 1 He promises that those who do so are "Like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither; whatever He does prospers. (vs 3)

Statement made in the book called Crazy Love: People who are obsessed with God have an intimate relationship with Him.

Question for us would be? What kind of relationship do we have with Christ?

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. I really like your post today! What a great picture the bible paints for us bei g a tree that is rooted, producing fruit & not withering-that is how I want my life to be described!! Most days I am anxious & excited to dive into his word, other days I may not "fee" like it but I know that those are the days I "need" God's words the most!!!!
