Growing in Christ Jesus

Mushrooms in the desert???
Cactus in a cave???

Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it. Because it is. Certain plants live in specific areas for one reason only, so they can grow. Cactus are prickly and mushrooms are squishy. Light and water make the difference here. God creates different environments for each plant and plants automatically know where it’s the place for them to grow.

God’s light, or enlightenment in our life, makes a difference in us. His Word, the Bible, is our light, and prayer is our watering place.

God designed us to grow the same way plants grow. We are created in His image, so it makes sense that we should grow to be more like Jesus. This earth is far from perfect. But Jesus Christ lived on earth and He showed us how to live abundantly. By being obedient to the Father in heaven.

Philippians 2:8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. NASB

Ephesians 5:8-10 – For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. NIV

Psalms 119:105 -Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. NASB
