God Plants Us Together

I love beautiful flowers, they are God's work of art.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:8-10
A work of art ~ that's one way to translate the word for handiwork found in todays Scripture. 
Just as a gardener carefully chooses individual plants for a garden, God has handpicked you to be his own.
He created you as his very own work of art. Awesome grace.
When we begin to understand grace, the undeserved love of God in Christ, we bloom!
Having created each one of us with his own loving hand, God "plants" us together with other believers, so that by His grace and in his strength, our good works, together with those of other believers, bloom to create a landscape that honors our Lord and brings him glory.
Thank You Lord for the fellowship of believers you've planted in my life.

  3. Lovely snapshots - and a little much needed tending for my own psyche. One can never have to many reminders of the necessity to be blooming along with others.
