Are You In Season?

I'll be back at Elkridge Baptist Church this weekend. Professor Bridges is under the weather and I've been asked to speak. Keep Professor Bridges in your prayers. Here are some ideas from the sermon I am preparing for Sunday.

Are You In Season?
Psalm 1:3

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
Power Tip:
Every Season of life is precious. Don't rush any of it!

Be a Tree!
What does it mean to be planted? The bible uses the greek word ridzo to describe how we are planted by God. Ridzo paints a picture of something firmly and deeply rooted. So rooted that it has become and object fixed in place, steady, stable and strong.

Trees grow as deep as they are tall. The bigger the tree the deeper the roots. Trees thrive in different environments. God plants us where He will and who better knows where our roots will grow deepest? We've got to trust in God because he always places us near resources. No matter the circumstances He is rooting us firmly in Him.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.
When you are planted in the right soil(Christ) and fed the right diet(The Word of God) your roots will run deep. Your roots determine your fruit. It is what is happening under the ground that determines what people will see.
