“Flowers and Roots”

Happy Jesus Day:
Early this morning, around four a.m. I saw myself in a beautiful field of flowers. I heard a voice say pick you a bunch of flowers; I could smell how sweet they smelled. I tried to wake up, but I couldn’t open my eyes. I heard the voice “say,” go ahead, pick a bunch of those flowers as I bent down to pick the flowers. I chose a big bunch holding them up to my face. The voice said, aren’t they beautiful? I thought they were pretty, the voice said, the roots were dead. They are beautiful on the top, but they come from dead roots. I didn’t know how to respond; how could such beautiful flowers come from dead roots? The voice said some believers are like flowers dressed up on the outside but dead on the inside. Christ can not reside in a dead house, no matter how beautiful the outside is. Like the flowers, the top is gorgeous, but the roots in the ground are over. We can dress up in beautiful outfits to show the outside. Being beautiful on the outside serves no purpose in living for Christ; just like the flowers will wither up and die, so will we. We must accept Christ as our Lord and Savior and invite Him to come into life in our hearts so that the outside will reflect the inside. “God Knows”
