FOR THOSE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH THE 2:7 SERIES This updated version of THE 2:7 SERIES replaces the 1999 edition, which was the most current version through 2010. About 90 percent of the content is the same, but it had been sharpened and updated.
BOOK 2: DEEPENING YOUR ROOTS IN GOD'S FAMILY Memorize several classic Bible verses that you will use for a lifetime. Experience an extended time alone with God. Think through your own spiritual history so that you can express it to someone not yet committed to Christ.
"Rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." -- Colossians 2:7
When a tree takes root, burrowing deep into the soil, it's not long before the action is mirrored above grown. New branches shoot out. Green, healthy leaves appear. Even the trunk grows sturdier, more storm-resistant.
And so it is with you. The deeper you root your life in Christ, the stronger you'll become.
Each book in THE 2:7 SERIES contains a dual focus: personal growth and sharing your life in Christ. This second study in the series will help you learn how to make Christ the Lord of your life. Then you'll discover how easy it is to branch out by reviewing your spiritual life and sharing it with others. With its biblical and practical approach to discipleship, this workbook will yield long-term, life-changing results, such as:
A closer relationship with God
A desire and method to memorize Scripture passages
A cohesive, useful personal testimony
The ability to spend extended times with God
