My son shared something with me yesterday that has led me to appreciate what God does in our lives even more.
When we want to plant something we may go out and buy a pot. The pot is very important. It holds the soil,seed and water. But what the pot doesn't do,is cause the seed to grow. What is going on inside of the pot is more important. The seed takes root,and grows and eventually forms into a beautiful flower or vegetable.
Our bodies are like the pot. We are but a vessel. What is going on inside of us is more important than the temple we dwell in. When Christ becomes a part of our lives, we begin to grow in His grace and knowledge becoming more and more like Him.
Satan has put it on the minds of us even Christians that the pot is more important. Make it pretty, Paint it this way, shape it that way. But inside so many are like nothing more than dead men's bones.
Let God work in You. Don't fight it. A plant doesn't fight the growth, it works with the soil and the sun and water to grow. In the same way we need to allow God's Word,trials, and blessings to happen and flow through us that we might become a fragrance that is pleasing to Him.
