Ephesians 3:17-18…and I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ…

As a tree without deep roots can easily fall in a storm or crash in a strong wind, we are vulnerable to the chaos of life surrounding us if our roots are not firmly and deeply planted in God’s word. When our roots reach deeply into the Word of God, we gain strength, direction and confidence. We grow in our love for God, ourselves and the people around us.
