Live

Have you noticed that all things growing reach for the Lord?
Move Upward.
First is the seed that goes in the ground and dies.
Then new life...
Teen Challenge testimonies today reminded me of this.
The Pastor even said it.
A seed.
Planted in the soil of Good News.
Hope.
People come to the end. They hit bottom. They are doing chin-ups on the curb.
Those that reach up for the Lord
Grow.
Bloom.
Reflect His glory.
Find worth. Purpose. Fulfillment.
New Life
Hope.
But death comes first.
Death to the way that doesn't work.
Death to idols.
 Idols of alcohol, drugs, pride, unbelief.
Death to the way that seems right to a man but leads to death.
Blessed is the one who "gets it" here.
So they can be planted and made new.
In Him.
Christ.
The one who died sinless.
So we could live free from the bondage of it.
And grow.
And bloom.
And live.
And reflect His glory.
Forever.
