He is like a tree growing near a stream and sending out roots to the water. It is not afraid when hot weather comes, because its leaves stay green; it has no worries when there is no rain; it keeps on bearing fruit. Jeremiah 17:8
When we see a tree with fruits, we marvel and immediately want to eat them, so we taste what our eyes see, which is impossible for it to go unnoticed. The reason for its beauty are the deep roots, which feed on the best of the land; for never will a tree bear fruit of such quality if it has not deepened its roots, because it will not have the components for growing.
So is our life in Christ. As deep as our roots are in the Lord, so will be our fruits. Hence, we cannot be moving from one side to another and being affected by circumstances that do not allow us to remain stable in the place that God has chosen for us to bear fruit.
When our roots are strong they can withstand winds, waves or storms, and those will not affect us. We will continue bearing fruit in the midst of these conditions; not anyone can resist them unless well planted.
Let us show the land in which we have been planted and bear fruit in time and out of time, for we are nourished by the Holy Spirit, who feeds us so our fruits are desirable in the eyes of others.
