Just like flowers and plants, we can’t expect to be watered one time and grow fully. We have to keep being watered.
To “keep being watered” means we have to be in continual pursuit of Christ. Longing for more of Him and filling ourselves up with Him daily.
On Tuesday afternoon the word absorb came to my mind tagging along three different things: God’s Word, time with Him, and opportunities.
This school year is coming to a close, and I feel as if I need to be making the most of every opportunity. To not look at the school day as wasted time, but to be striving to share God’s love and light to everyone.
We need to be so full of Christ that He’s what shines through our everyday lives. Not ourselves. As Christians, He lives inside of us and we should want to live so passionately for Him that it’s contagious.
Never forget that there’s purpose in where you’re placed. If we can’t serve God faithfully and live for Him where we’re placed now, then how do we expect to do so later on in life?
My challenge for us today is that we would live so closely to Him, be watered by Him daily, make the most of our time and opportunities, shine brightly, serve Him well where we’re placed, and to treat others how He has treated us.
