Growing Roots

Melissa Helser

We need a generation that is so rooted and grounded in the Lord, that they know how to transfer what happens in corporate worship into the world.
* We aren’t waiting for moments to flow into our normal life, our normal life is flowing into moments.

“No matter what my circumstances are, He is good.”
* Rooted and grounded in what the cross paid for.

The greatest gift of the cross is the Holy Spirit.
* He wanted so badly to get inside you that He sacrificed Jesus.
* The book of Acts is humanity trying to figure out “what do we do with God inside of us?”

When Jesus walked the earth, He had zero resistance to the Holy Spirit.
* He modeled total dependency.
* He did what His Father was doing.

You do not mature into being independent. True maturity looks like total and utter dependency.
* You will never outgrow your need for God.

You can’t really teach on the Holy Spirit, you just have to meet the Holy Spirit.

The gift of His presence in humanity swallowed up loneliness.
* He swallows up your loneliness when you cultivate true friendship with Him.

It’s so easy to celebrate other people when you receive the celebration of Heaven. Then there is no competition.

The Holy Spirit came for you to bear fruit, and it has nothing to do with your gifting.
* Galatians 5
* Use your freedom to serve one another in love. That’s how freedom grows.

Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit.

Those who don’t give themselves to the gift of the family are paranoid and lonely and consumed with "competition".
* They have the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival.

When you’re rooted in Him, you don’t have to work for fruit, and you just grow. Then people come under the shade of your tree.

You will never feel true fullness on a stage.

Sing what you believe.
* Learn how to walk through the orchard of your life, and let the Lord prune you.
* Trees totally yield to the seasons.

Winter brings clarity.
* The trees know who they are and their season.
* In winter they are resting and their roots are growing. They are not insecure.

If you do not know Jesus, you will question His motives always, and you will misinterpret seasons constantly.
* Embrace seasons with Grace and Humility because you KNOW Jesus.

In hard seasons, we have the opportunity to show the world what the Lord is really like.

Become obsessed with the nature of God.

If we really know Him, we will reflect Him, echo Him, resound with His truth, and then a generation will not get caught up in our sound but His sound and the brightness of his glory will overtake us and all they will see is Him.
