Plant Your Life in Chris

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Plant Your Life in Christ”

As we end our mini-series using the illustration of pole-vaulting, and how we are to get and stay above the bar instead of falling beneath it, there’s one last step. To recap, we looked at finding the right flexibility in the pole and our lives. Next, no matter how good the pole is, we need to get a running start to gain the necessary speed to get above the bar.

But it really doesn’t do any good if we’ve got the perfect pole and gained the necessary speed to make the jump if we don’t get the pole properly planted. Because if we don’t plant the pole correctly, we’ll end up in a jumbled heap at the bottom.

The Bible says we need to get our lives firmly planted in Jesus Christ if we want to live above the bar, which entails not only an abundant life now, but eternal life in heaven. But if we don’t, then we’ll end up crashing and burning under God’s wrath.

Jesus said, “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:36)

That’s what happens to everyone who doesn’t get his or her life planted in Jesus Christ. Jesus said that all those who do not believe are condemned (Mark 16:16; John 3:18) and will end up in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8).

Talk about crashing and burning.

Jesus said that believing in God is good, but to get above the bar we need to believe in Him.

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.” (John 14:1)

Jesus also said when we make that profession of faith, when we plant our lives in Him, then we’ll live life above the bar, not only while on earth, but also for eternity.

Therefore, let’s get ourselves planted in Christ, and see our lives soar.
