Good Growth

 Life in Christ is about growing. The bonsai tree is a very small tree that has been manipulated in to staying tiny. By keeping the tree in a small pot (roots cannot expand) to severe pruning it keeps the plant small. I think we have "bonsai" Christians out there! They think, act, serve, and worship too small. We were meant to grow!

Look what Paul has to say in Colossians 2:6-7; So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.  

This is a great reminder on how to grow and keep growing in our Christian faith. You first accept Christ as your Savior, then live your life in Him and through Him. We are "rooted" by our faith and strengthen by learning His Word, and from mature Christians. This will lead to a life of joy and thankfulness!

Take time today to do a faith and growth "check-up". One quick test is to ask others if they think you are joyful and thankful.

 Keep rooted and growing in Jesus.
