A WORD IN PASSING - February 2021

         The on and off lockdowns have given me time to improve or even learn new hobbies.  This time propogating  

    plants from other plants! It’s surprising how one dying plant- when given lots of tender care- is revived and goes

    on to produce more of its kind.

         It’s the same with our Christian faith.  The moment we put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, our dying

    condition changes, we become alive in Christ (Ephesians 2:1) and we become children of God (John 1:12)!  The   

    difference from plants is, everlasting life is secured for us in Christ (John 3:16).  Not only that, we are empowered

    by the Holy Spirit to share the same faith to others and bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as

    well...and them sharing it to others and to others...and in doing so, we fulfil the last commission of Christ to us:

            “Therefore go and mke disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son

             and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am

             with you always, to the very end of the age.”                                                                        Matthew 28:18-20

                                                                                                                                Esther Pulham
