7 Rooted [rhizoo] and [kai] built up [epoikodomeo] in [en] him, [autos] and [kai]stablished[bebaioo] in [en] the faith, [pistis] as [kathos] ye have been taught, [didasko] abounding [perisseuo] therein [en][autos] with [en] thanksgiving. [eucharistia]KJV-Interlinear
7 having been firmly rooted and
now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were
instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. NASB
As you learn doctrine,
the principles of spiritual understanding root themselves deep inside of your
soul. More doctrine, more application, and more time, all three develop
spiritual muscle, which in turn ingrains spiritual knowledge, understanding,
and wisdom inside of your soul.
Often times we call
this the result of spiritual growth, or spiritual production.This is the creation or fabrication of
spiritual resources within your life.
And this is said to be built
up in Him, in Christ, who is the living source of Bible doctrine, or truth,
which is available to each and every one of us through the written word.
And all of this, gives us faith, or the reliance in life on something
that we cannot see or even detect, or measure.We can only believe.And based on
faith alone, we look to God for a phenomenal future in heaven, with
But this overwhelming
gratitude is a mirror of the overwhelming provision which God gives to us, or
will give to us in eternity.
The word for abounding,
perisseuo, means super-abound, abundance, excess.And when you match it to eternity, then Gods
provision is so vast, that you could never use, or use up, his provision in all
of eternity.And that is a lot.
Even in this life,
where we seem to be living through an age of narcissism.As people have become so consumed with
themselves, with their own desires, with their own ego s, with their own wants,
with their own beliefs, with their own opinions, to the exclusion of anything
and anyone else.And,
ignoring all of the repercussions.
And yet with all of the
worldly things that drive this attitude, which results in absolutely nothing
for ones life, there is still the simply written
word, the scriptures, with their hidden code, as it were, undiscoverable by any
human means, but hold the key to riches and wealth so vast that this universe
cannot contain it all.
And people miss it all
because of their fixation on their carnal lifestyles and greed, due to their indifference
The bulk of the world
has been anti-God for generations.The
bulk of the world has been in poverty for generations.The bulk of the world pursues religions, not
to honor God, but as a means to an end, which is their selfish desires of
gratification of sin related pursuits.
Christianity honors God
through Christ, and as a result of mindful obedience to His Word, God supplies
spiritually mature believers with blessings so vast, you will never be able to
measure them all.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
