LIFE IN CHRIST

I love the imagery of being grafted into Christ.  It’s a beautiful picture of how, when we are brought to Jesus by the Holy Spirit, our broken, sinful bodies gain new life through Him.  Grafting is a process whereby new life sprouts when added to a strong living thing.

To think that we have a God who cares so much about us, loves us unconditionally, wants us to live abundant lives, knows our every need and provides it, hears our every prayer and answers them is more than comforting for the sinner.  We’ve all fallen short of His expectation of perfection and still He wants us to be a part of Him.

The grafting process requires cutting and a slow bonding to the main root.  None of us likes to go through difficulties, but to become one with God, we will face them.  We’ll be cut, bruised, put to the test, refined and burned, pushed and reshaped, but the outcome is fresh and renewed life through the Creator of all things.

When we meld our spirits with other sinners, we can find a support system that will not only build us up, but carry us through those tough times of life. We become a part of the communion of saints.  Latching on to Him as our mediator to God the Father, we can be assured of eternal life – a life where each day brings new growth and bounty.

So while we’re still alive and walking the face of the earth, it’s our responsibility to tell others about this wonderful gift.  Our world is in a terrible state.  Now is the time for restoration.

For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
