BE TRULY PLANTED

Psalm 92:13 (KJV)
Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.


An elder in a church had spent many years in various positions. Though feared by some, he was generally not liked by anyone because of his character. Without gaining any new converts, ministries he was asked to head soon started diminishing in numbers.

Individually and collectively with Christ, we are the house of God, and not our worship venues or denomination to which we belong. This means our quality [of character] as parts of God’s building matters a lot (1Cor 3:6-17, Eph 2:19-22, 1Pet 2:5).

Though many view today's scripture mainly in the light of commitment and participation in church activities (which is still an aspect of it), being planted in its true sense refers to one's personal growth in Christ, one's benefit to His kingdom, and one's godly influence on others.

Colossians 2:7 says we are to be "Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith…”

Being established in the faith is the fertilizer that encourages growth and rootedness. It is a result of obedience to the Word of God. In expressing our faith, we must be motivated by love; helping others also to become planted in God's house (Rom 3:31, Rom 13:8-10, Gal 5:6).

The way to flourish is for one to walk in love and hate sin (Heb 1:9). By this, people will see that we are truly planted in God's house and desire to be a part of it (Isa 61:3, John 13:35, Col 1:10, Tit 2:7-8).

Go into today knowing that being planted in God's house means having a deeper bond, trust, and love for Christ. By abiding in this attitude, you'll undoubtedly flourish (Ps 1:1-3, Ps 92:14, Jer 17:7-8).
