…remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
Romans 11:18b

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
Col. 2:6-7

True spirituality begins in the root.  The root is Jesus. Jesus always was and always will be the root of all spirituality God wants or accepts.
And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. Col. 1:17

Legalism always offers us a plan to change places with Jesus. Legalism calls us to support Jesus.  Legalism is always a complete failure because Jesus does not need our support.  We need His.

It is always Jesus who is the root and support of spirituality. If we want to live a spirituality that inspires, liberates and produces the fruit God desires we must understand that Jesus is the One who sustains us moment by moment.
