Compel: Buried for Breakthrough

Here To Stay | Drew Bridges

“The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.” [Psalm 92:12-13]

Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we get to be planted with Him. We get to root ourselves to the Creator of the universe. So many things happen when we are planted: we have a clear vision, we can withstand the seasons, and we bear fruit.

As followers, we’re called to be planted. Not just anywhere though, but planted in the house of God. And not just called, but designed. We are created for community, for relationship, for planting. We are designed to be rooted.

To follow Jesus, to really put His principals into practice, we have to get planted and stay planted. Without roots, without steadfastness, without being intentional, we can’t live as we were created to live: in community.

Find your tribe. Find people that support you and encourage you and pray with you and build you up. Put down roots, and allow yourself to be planted in the Kingdom.
