Rooted in the Word

Welcome to Rooted in the Word, a weekly devotion relevant to our daily living situations. Let’s dig a little deeper into His truth, to take root, grow—and flourish.

Did you know trees in Scripture often represent spiritual life? The trunk is the channel of strength from God; the branches are the people who serve Him. Ephesians 3:17 says, “Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong” (New Living Translation).

Events in our lives cause us to all feel cut down at times. We choose how to use life’s struggles. Do we allow growth, or remain cut down? Regardless of where we have been, Isaiah 11:1 reminds us, “A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit” (New International Version).

Whether our stories are hopeful or hard, they can bear good fruit.
Together, let’s share the harvest.
