Catch Fire Day 7
I planted a seed in the spring time. It was so small and I wondered whether that would actually become a flower. However, on the envelope of the seeds I saw a picture of beautiful flowers. It gave me some image and hope.
Now, after Easter, I could see green sprouts. It actually had life hidden in the seeds! Now I can feel confident that someday I will actually see the flower that I saw in the picture! The flowers have been there all the time. That is why the Bible tells us that
“your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”
Even when we are under all the pressures of the world we have hope. We know that we would not end up dead under the ground. We will have beautiful life above the ground. The Bible encourages, “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things” (Colossians 3:1-4).
As the sunlight that comes from above the ground is the source of life for a seed. he love of God is the source of life for us! Let us set our mind on God’s love and share it today with others!
