The Bonsai Christian
As Christians we can be like a tree that has:
– Limited Fruit
God has not designed us to ‘play it small’.
You were created to flourish and to display ‘God’s splendour’.
If we’re going to grow to display Gods splendour our roots need to be in the right place.
Deep root systems are strong.
A big tree that has shallow roots is dangerous.
Pot bound trees will never reach their full potential — people who don’t grow in their faith’s maturity never reach their full potential.
God doesn’t want to TEND to our lives he wants to TRANSFORM it — God doesn’t want to tend to the top of the tree, but to the roots.
We go deeper with Jesus, because with Jesus we have the strength to withstand the storms.
We go deeper with Jesus, because with Jesus we mature.
We go deeper with Jesus, because with Jesus we become a church that reaches people outside of the 4 walls of a building.
