The garden planted last Sunday …is an annual event at Rick Roehm’s house.
Keeping the weeds out comes along with the package. Tending to the garden causes the plants to flourish and yield great fruit. Don’t like to do it – but its necessary. Same goes for the life in Christ. It must be tended to and maintained. Tending to the faith is necessary for a life in Christ. Produces the fruitful life – not speaking of material goods. Fruitfulness from Christ is happiness that comes from the new life and clean heart. It’s up to you and I to walk in the newness of life and to keep ourselves in right-standing with God. Happiness comes from such life. Contentment is found within such life. We must tend to the things necessary to remain faithful and clean in the eyes of God. A better life is found. This better life must be tended to – like keeping the weeds out of the garden – so the Tomatoes and Peppers can flourish. Glory! We have what it takes. We have the tools! We have the desire. We have the Holy Spirit! We have great fruit! Glory! Let us tend to our faith in Christ.
