Grafted In 18/1/15
King David saw the value in meditating on the works of God. He said, “I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds. (Psalm 77:12)” He also said the heavens declared the “glory of God (Psalm 19:1).” So thinking about them helped him to know and appreciate his Lord.
Does meditating on God’s works give you glimpses of his glory and how He works in nature and people? God is not stingy. God is generous. There is openness about God that desires all people to participate in His life and share His resources. Those who were not considered His people from ages past have been accepted and grafted in so they can share his life giving Spirit, so the rivers of life can flow through them too.
Most taps have one spout for the water but while in Berrima for a photo shoot, I saw one that had two! I took more photos of taps and water and grafted them on so that all the taps shared the same water source. Like the Christian church, a new branch grafted into God’s family, they can all have the water of the Holy Spirit flowing through them to bless the world. These taps are all different, but they share the same resource, a resource that can make a difference to the world.
"If the part of the dough offered as first fruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches."
"If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you (Romans 11:17-18)."
"... whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things (Philippians 4:8)."
