“so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” – Eph. 3: 17-19
To be able to live a christian life, we have to be rooted and be established in love. That’s very promising. However, we have to understand that for us to be rooted, we have to be UPROOTED first from the ways of the world. We can’t enjoy God’s promises while we are living in the cursed ground.
Uprooting is hurtful. We are living our own life for so long that giving it up is not so easy. It takes God to deal with us. Let’s just be open-minded. Let’s allow God to work in our hearts, in the very depths of our being.
It’s never an easy task, but if it takes God to work in your life, surely, EVERY fruit is worth of your sacrifice.
