“No one is established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.” -Proverbs 12:3
It is amazing what images God uses in the Bible to make His point!
Just imagine that image for a while … a huge tree with high-in-the-sky branches, supported by very deep and widespread roots. The taller the tree, the deeper the roots get. Why? Because only then the tree remains strong, stable and vital in the midst of everything-whether strong wind, drought, or flood. And you know what else? This tree will always yield fruits!
Now, in the light of this analogy, about the Kingdom people, it should be clear to us that there are no sinners in the Kingdom (when we witness believers doing the same mistake over and over again) but disobedient righteous..because their roots are not deep.
Disobedience will always create instability and obedience on the other hand will activate the results of acts and choices done in faith.
When Paul wrote: ‘I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13) he gave us a profound perspective of the daily Christian life. Basically this verse explains to us that we take one obstacle at a time, we overcome it and continue to overcome them one by one. We claim and conquer that territory, begin to reign over it and as we grow in maturity a.k.a perfection, we continue our walk with the Lord.
And in that pilgrimage, we basically learn to master and reign over our soul, overcoming its issues.
This process includes everyone and no one will be excluded! No short cuts in the Kingdom. It’s up to us and our willingness to obey.
