I bet you like flowers. I do. They pop up out of the barren ground, and decorate the earth with beautiful color, and some smell good.
Only God can make a flower. But how are flowers made? From a seed. And not just flowers! Everything comes from a seed–including you!
The flower would still be a seed if it stayed above ground, but it would never become what God meant it to be, would it? It must be planted, or “sowed.” When sowed, it will start to produce what is inside.
It’s the same with our lives. What are they producing? Are they like beautiful flower gardens, full of “Sonflowers” from Jesus, the Son of God, of love and peace and joy and energy and purity and creativity and trust in our loving Daddy God?
We grow “Sonflowers” when we let Jesus “bloom” through us in these ways.
Romans 8:29, (CEV) says, “and He has always known who his chosen ones would be. He had decided to let them become like his own Son, so that his Son would be the first of many children.” God sowed the supreme Sonflower of His Son, Jesus, to get an earth-garden full of many more “Sonflowers”–us!
What is your favorite kind of flower?
