Today is Day 7 in the 12 Day Journey to Transformation!
Today we will explore the destructive power of “bitter roots.”
In spite of the fact that Jesus demands fruit from His people, we are not expected to bear that fruit by our own efforts. Fruit is the promise, not the process.
So what is our responsibility? We saw in our previous session we learned of the importance of having deep roots. In addition, the Bible admonishes us very strongly, “Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many” (Hebrews 12:15, New Living Translation).
Our responsibility is to watch over the root system of our lives, ensuring that it is healthy. As we do, the Lord will produce an abundant yield of fruit in our lives!
DAY 7 CHALLENGE: Read Matthew 23. How have you been more concerned about the outward than the inward? Write it down and pray for God’s help to change.
