“Grow In His Grace”

grace growing in it

Now that winter has finally arrived we no longer have to concern ourselves with weeds interfering with our pursuit of a beautiful, thriving flower garden. It always amazes me how weeds just grow. They need no help at all. They will thrive, take over and eventually choke the life out of your beautiful flowers. It is interesting how some things just grow all by themselves. I have to laugh when I here someone say to a child, “You are growing like a weed!!!!” Funny expression, yet true. A child growing up is a good and positive thing yet there are certain things that grow with no help that can be destructive to our soul.

The truth of the matter is that there are many negative things in life if left to themselves that will grow and thrive without any help at all. Think about the sin of bitterness and hate and how it can grow and take root and ultimately destroy one’s soul.

2 Peter 3:18

“Be careful that you do not fall from your strong faith. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Glory be to him, now and forever! Amen.”

We must purpose to feed on His Word that we remain strong. How silly it would be if we ate a good dinner this evening and think we could survive off of that meal for the rest of the year. No, we would become weak. Our body would become depleted in it’s much needed nutrition that we need for strength to live. As we ponder that thought let us also grow in grace and in the knowledge of God’s Word that our soul may be nourished and we remain strong. An individual remains strong in their faith because they purpose to stay strong. Let us purpose to stay strong and grow in His grace.God bless you!
