Growing deeper and larger is “a growth that is from God” (v. 19). We grow deeper when we study God’s Word, when we ask the Holy Spirit to help us pray “with sighs too deep for words” (Romans 8:26), and when we enter deep-spirited friendships with people around us. But we also need to grow larger by planting seeds in the community around us. We do this by sharing the gospel through conversations and live-streamed worship services. We do it by getting to know and helping our neighbors. We do it best by sharing the love of Jesus with our family members and friends. That is a life that is rooted and built up in Christ and established in the Christian faith.
