Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Finishing Well
The Empowered Life of Roots and Wings: A life that takes root and bears fruit (Col 1:9-12)
Paul prays continually for the Colossian believers. He knew that for them to grow and stand firm, they needed to be rooted and firmly established in their relationship with God. We also need to be rooted and established in our relationship with God. The natural cycle of plants tells us that a healthy plant will produce fruit. God wants us to be healthy and fruitful and we do this by growing in our knowledge and relationship with God. Take time to thank God for all that he has already done in your life, and ask him to continue to change and grow you in your relationship with him.
