Pastor B: Pastor Ben Johnson

Message Summary:

A Tree Planted by God

The Bible was written at a time when an agrarian culture was dominant and so it makes perfect sense that the Lord often used “growing plant” imagery to describe our faith and life in Him. Though we are much less agrarian today, we nonetheless connect well when the Lord uses these kinds of images. On a base level, we understand that in order to be productive, a plant needs to be firmly rooted in deep, rich soil with an ample water source available. We also understand then, that in order for a Christian to flourish in their faith, they have to be planted by God, in the fertile soil and flowing waters of His Word.
