A drab green plant and an uninspiring spike; ‘do not be deceived …’ and ‘… sow to please the Spirit …’ (Gal 6:7,8)
Look what happens!
When the Master Gardener is at work, suddenly the deceptive spike bursts forth and raises its hands to the Lord. A plant is transformed as colours shout praises into the heavens and the gardener is called to worship with the plant.
When we sow with the Spirit, no matter how long we must wait, no matter what guise we hold, there is a promise that we will reap with the Spirit: Eternal Life!
No wonder then that a plant shouts; “Glory, Lord, Christ, Redeemer – Hallelujah”.
And the plants wait for us to follow their example as we Garden with God.
