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
· Christ Foundation Build Up
“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.

3. No law
Every day you are building a resume
On judgment day will you stand approved or ashamed?
· Follow his blueprint
· Build for him, not for yourself.
· Hear him say “Well Done”
