As I sit here and look out my window, Gayla is pulling weeds. The weeds are my fault, you see a few years ago I got some scrapings of some horse manure and it had the weeds in it. One thing led to another and well, like I said Gayla is pulling weeds.
Did you know that we can have the same thing happen to us. We can pick up a bad habit or two, like not attending church on Sunday, or skipping Wednesday Night Prayer meeting. Oh, I know we didn't mean for it to happen, but the weed of indifference somehow got into our life. Maybe it was the weed of busyness that popped up in your life and keeps you from loving "the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' (Matthew 22:37-38).
If we let that weed stay in our life unchecked it will spread and we will have a life full of weeds. If you didn't know it our "soil" is a great place for weeds to grow quickly. What do I mean? Do you remember what Romans 3:23 says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," Yeap, ever since our first parents ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil we have had great soil for sin weeds to thrive.
That's right these weeds of indifference, or busyness or whatever kind is growing in your life are all from the family of sin. Woe, Brother Orden you can't sit there and judge me, calling me a sinner. Hey I'm not judging any body and it's the Bible that calls all of us a sinner "All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away." (Isaiah 64:6).
Now I want to tell you about the "Master Gardener," His name is Jesus, now Christ Jesus did many things while He was here on earth, but His main job was to do away with the weeds of sin in our lives. "Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14-17).
If you would like to know Christ Jesus better, then just call on His name and start a life saving relationship with Him. for "Whoever Will Call On The Name Of The LORD Will Be Saved."
