Root and Fruit


And the remnant who have escaped of the house of Judah Shall again take root downward, And bear fruit upward.

‭‭II Kings‬ ‭19:30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


GOD’s encouragement to Hezekiah was: They shall take root downward and bear fruit upward. What a great promise!


I love that phrase. It is the description of discipleship.

- Take root downward. I need good roots. Deep roots. Roots that will provide nourishment and stability. Spiritual disciples of prayer, Bible reading, biblical community are some of those roots.

- Bear fruit upward. The healthier the root the better the fruit. Fruit is worship, obedience, good deeds, evangelism.


Jesus, help me to take root downward and bear fruit upward.
