Grounded in the Faith: Psalm 1
In a marriage ceremony, you are saying “I want to spend the rest of my life with my spouse”. In baptism, you are saying “I want to be in union with God and spend the rest of my life with Him.” It’s God’s desire that you actually want Him.
The picture is of a tree constantly sucking up nourishment from the stream. Its roots are going deeper and the tree is getting stronger. That’s the person who meditates on God’s word day and night. You can’t be watered once a week and expect to survive.
