2:7 Rooted in him - As the vine. Built - On the sure foundation.
I shall this morning, by God's help, address you upon the two portions of the text. First, I shall endeavour to describe Christ as spoiling his enemies on the cross; and having done that I shall lead your imagination and your faith further on to see the Saviour in triumphal procession upon his cross, leading his enemies captive, and making a shew of them openly before the eyes of the astonished universe.

1 Corinthians 3:9
For we are both God's workers. And you are God's field. You are God's building.
Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong.
Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him,
