Deep Roots

Mark 4:17 17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. (NIV)

How do we make sure our roots go deep into rich soils and grow strong?  We study the scriptures diligently.  As we study, we allow the Holy Spirit to water and fertilize that we will understand what we read and study.  This is not a once a week thing.  We must study daily to grow.  Just like skipping a meal decreases the nutrition our body receives, skipping a day of Bible study weakens the growing roots.  Times are becoming difficult around the entire world for those who would stand firm on the Word of God.  Let us commit to daily study that our roots will grow deep and strong so we can stand against any storm that comes our way.
