Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
-Colossians 2:7 (NLT)
Every great church has a clearly marked pathway to help its people on the journey of spiritual growth. Along the way, there are well-lit signs revealing a rational, coherent and systematic view of the Bible, how to merge into friendships with others on the journey, and the elements of a vibrant life of following Jesus.
Rooted is Overlake’s pathway.
I do ask that you humbly commit to prioritizing this pathway...that you commit to church attendance and small group attendance during this season. Out of the seven weeks, we’re asking for you to miss no more than two. The problem isn’t that we’re unwilling to sacrifice everything to follow Jesus, it’s that we’re unwilling to sacrifice anything. And so for the next seven weeks, we’re asking you to make a sacrifice of your time to commit to nurturing the roots of your spiritual life.
My prayer is that you’ll joyfully lean into Jesus and discover as you do, that He is nearer, wilder, and more wonderful than you have ever imagined. My prayer is also that His presence in your life will foster a peace that you’ve only dreamed of.
No matter where you are spiritually...a journey awaits.
Excited for the journey of developing our roots, together--
Pastor Mike Howerton
