Are You Growing?

It’s easy to sit and listen. But if that’s all we do, we’ll never grow. What’s hard is getting out there and doing what God has told us to do. It’s easy to hear about spiritual gifts, but it’s hard to get out there and use them. That’s scary! That’s outside of my comfort zone! But that’s the only way we grow. And a faith that requires no courageous action, a faith that never requires you to step out of your comfort zone is not a faith that opens the door to the kingdom of God; it’s a faith that closes the door to the kingdom of God.

Your Hidden Glory

In our passage today, Paul says that we are like little seeds. We’re pretty small. We don’t look all that impressive. This little seed doesn’t appear glorious at all. That is, unless you bury it in the ground. Bury this tiny seed in the dirt and what is it that soon bursts forth? A plant thousands of times the size of that seed, full of flowers with breathtaking color, beauty, and glory.

And that is a tiny picture of what soon will happen when our bodies are buried in the ground if we are in Christ. Just as you can’t see the full glory of what is contained in this seed until it is buried in the ground, you can’t see our full glory now. But once we are buried, the glory of who we really are through Jesus will be revealed. A glory thousands of times greater than what you can see right now; full of breathtaking beauty, power, and light.

An Indestructible Life

Do you live as if sin and death have been knocked over? Do you live as if fear and weakness have been defeated? Do you live as if evil has lost the war? That’s the power of the resurrection of Jesus. And that life is for us today. Because of the resurrection of Jesus, we no longer have to be afraid.

Because of the resurrection of Jesus, we can experience a life where evil and sin no longer threaten us. Because of the resurrection of Jesus, we can live an indestructible life.
