Make ready.

Jesus started the church and introduced love into the world when He died on the cross.  Moses’ purpose led people to God and helped illustrate why we need Christ.  Only Jesus has the building blocks for the church.

Christ became flesh; He understands the human condition, calling us siblings.  As the Son of God, Jesus shares the title of Lord.  Christ’s actions create the connector which attaches us to God.

When we vacationed, I used an automatic watering system for my flowers.  Clear tubes connected with tiny plastic t’s went to each plant, the other end connected to a pump attached to the water.  Every 6 hours, the small motor ran for two minutes, watering my impatiens.

Reliable parts.

Jesus started the church and gave us the tools to build it.  Following Christ’s instruction, we will enlarge God’s kingdom.  Remember, Jesus spent His early life as a carpenter; He knows how to build.  All builders know that the more reliable the parts, the better the structure.

My watering system had reliable parts, which allowed my flowers to thrive in our absence.  The pump connecting the tubes to the water source worked well.  Jesus connects us to the living water, joining us with the endless supply of love from above. We refresh others with the overflow of love God pours into our lives. Building your life with Jesus will give you a sturdy structure to survive the storm winds.  Applying Christ’s teaching to everyday life will help you thrive.  Living in the moment will help you enjoy life to the fullest, basking in the Son’s rays.
