Lessons from the Garden — Light, Water, and Growth

The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.

Genesis 2:8

LORD Jesus, we stand in awe of You, Creator of the heavens and the earth. Thank You, Light of the World, for stepping down into this dark world to save us from our sins so that one day we can be with You in eternity. We praise You, for giving us Living Water into our hearts so it will flow richly through us and out of us. Help us to grow in the knowledge and wisdom of Your Word. How grateful we are to know that nothing is impossible for You. We praise You, O LORD, for You are the One who is mighty to save. Hallelujah! In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

It’s amazing to watch plants stretch out from underneath the compost and toward the light. If the pot of a potted plant is turned around the plant eventually bends toward the light again. Plants are made to grow in the light.

They need water, too. The amount of it is also important. Some plants want a constant humid soil. They do not like to dry out. On the other side, too much water weakens their growth, too.

Light and water contribute much to the health of a plant. These components are very important for humans, too. The sunlight helps our body to produce vitamin D. This vitamin is needed to take in calcium and phosphorus from the digestive system and into the blood. Our body consists of a large amount of water. We could not survive without it for long.

What the physical elements, sunlight and water, are for our body, the spiritual Light and Water are for our soul. Jesus Christ is that Light (John 1:4-9), and if we believe in Him then rivers of living water will flow out of our hearts (John 7:38).

Praise Christ Jesus for the Light and the Water today.
