A few weeks ago when I had just returned from a long trip, I went out to look at my plants. To my disappointment I noticed my rose-bush was being eaten by beetles. I began by clipping all the dead off. This caused some of the beetles to fly away. But, I knew they would return. Then, I remembered that I had some Sevin dust, so I quickly sprinkled that over the entire bush.
Today, when I look I my bush, I see beautiful roses and a thriving plant. It reminded me that when I decide to confess the name of Jesus and am baptized all of the bad is washed away. I become a new creation, 2 Corinthians 5:17. I was dead in my sin but Christ has brought me to life, Ephesians 2.
Open God’s word and find the treasure He has prepared for you.
