"...rooted and grounded in love..." Ephesians 3:14-21
Is a mixed metaphor of agricultural with a construction metaphor. When you are certain of God’s love for you then you are “rooted” like a plant. You can begin to grow and flourish and bear fruit. When you are certain of God’s love for you, it is like the foundation of a building. The word translated “grounded” is used for the foundation of a house. You are “established” on the foundation of God’s love and the building can then be constructed.
