Rooted

Rooted sermon slideThis weekend, we will begin a three-week series entitled “Rooted” at Eastbrook Church.

So many of us long to live full of life. Of course, the question is how we can really live that way. Psalm 1:3 says that those who live with God will be “like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.”

In this three-week series, we will journey through Psalm 1 to explore what it means to be rooted, full of life, and bearing fruit in God. Let’s live like trees!

I am encouraging people to memorize Psalm 1 as part of this series. Take a moment to read the entire psalm here.

1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
