Rooted and Grounded Part 3

 Notes from Dan Smith's presentation at Emmaus Bible College Chapel, Fall 2012
Introducing our theme for the year of Rooted, Grounded and built up.... 

I think these are key truths to teach ALL children (as a formal lesson and as we live...)

Rooted. Grounded. Built Up.
Ephesians 3: 14-21
Colossians 1: 21-23

Colossians 2: 6-7

Be rooted in
·         Love
·         Christ          Foundation                Build Up
·         Faith

Be a hardhat for Jesus” on the “construction site”
Decide what you want to build
Find the architect – this will lead you to a blueprint
Find other construction workers and be one yourself – follow the blue print
            Workmen (construction worker) don’t decide where stuff goes – the architect does.
We have to follow the blue print, or the construction worker could mess up and have to start over.
Blue print = The Bible
Architect = Jesus Christ
Construction Worker = Us. Fellow Christians

*Get a foundation in Christ, and build up according to the plan.

Workmen must work with precision according to what the blue print is to be.
“correctly handles the word of truth” 2 Timothy 2:15
            If you distort the scripture you are mishandling the scripture. This can happen if you have
            Issue of Character:
1.      No discipline
2.      No ballast (Stability)
3.      No law

Side Note:
            Every day you are building a resume 
            On judgment day will you stand approved or ashamed?

Final thoughts:
·         Follow his blueprint
·         Build for him, not for yourself.
·         Hear him say “Well Done”
