This week, we're talking about the Core Value of Intimacy with God...
A God-shaped life is illustrated in the Bible as a flourishing tree planted by God through the work of His hands. Those who trust in God can be like a tree planted by a stream of water, whose leaves are always green, alway bearing fruit (Psalm 1:3). When Jesus announced His ministry to a brokenhearted, enslaved world, He said He would not just heal people, but transform them into “oaks of righteousness” (Isaiah 61:3).
If you are a follower of Christ, the seed of discipleship is planted in your life. God’s desire is for you to develop deep roots, grow strong, and experience His full power and presence, but many disciples never fully develop and suffer the consequences of a shallow life.
In a six-year study by Christian researcher and author, George Barna, ten stages are identified in the Christian journey for fully experiencing God and His wholeness. According to Barna, only one in twenty Christians (five percent), grow past the depth of stage six. God desires every disciple experience all ten stages.
Just as a tree grows from the core, you also have the ability to grow when you focus on the core of who you are and what you can become in Christ.
Comment below what you are doing to grow deep roots in Christ. How can we learn from each other this week?
