BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 4-5, John 4:1-54


MESSAGE:


One of the titles of our Lord Jesus Christ in our Bible reading for today is Root of David. This reminds one of Jesus link to plants and trees. No wonder He said in John 15:1-5 that He is the Vine while we are the branches. In addition to being the Vine, He is the Root. The root of a tree is the most essential part of the tree, yet hidden in the ground. This implies that as children of God, Jesus is our Root and He is hidden inside of us. Just as a strong wind cannot uproot a tree that has firm roots in the ground, nothing can shake a true child of God. No problem can sweep you away. So, whenever you feel lonely or overwhelmed by any challenge, remember that Jesus is living inside you; you cannot be moved. However, you have to focus on Him. If you lose focus of Him like Peter did when he walked towards Jesus on water (Matthew 14:29-30 ), you will be moved.


Also, do not allow sin or unrighteousness in your life because if you do, He will leave you. Therefore, whatever price you have to pay to remain in Christ, ensure you pay it, so that nothing will move you.


KEY POINT:


Your today and future are secure with Christ, your root.


HYMN: IN CHRIST ALONE


In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song;

This Cornerstone; this solid ground;

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm;

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My Comforter, my All in All

Here in the love of Christ, I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones He came to save

‘Til on that cross as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid

Here in the death of Christ I live, I live.

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious Day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His and He is mine

Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death

This is the power of Christ in me

From life’s first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
