Grow Deep

Audio from Senior Pastor Vaughn Drawdy on Sunday morning January 15, 2017.

Colossians 2:6-8
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.

Paul's letter to Colossae not only recognizes them as a body of new believers, but also encourages them to grow in the ways of Christ to fully reveal God’s character and love. Growing deeper is vitally important for us as we grow in our relationship with God and connect to His purpose for our lives.

Points for us to be encouraged and challenged in:

1. Recognize a need for Growth.
Matthew 7:24-27
Proverbs 1:5-7

2. Take Responsibility for Personal Growth in Faith.
1 Samuel 30:1-6

3. Position Yourself for Growth (Discipline).
Psalms 1:1-3

4. Dig Deep in the Word (Haggah).
Psalm 1:2

5. Apply the Word (Bear Fruit).
John 15:5-8
