MINISTER’S NOTE 13 June 2021

Everyday activities can teach us a lot about the
work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Gardening or
farming is one activity Jesus uses quite often in his
teachings. There is work for us to do: getting the
seed planted, growing in Christ, and helping with
the harvest when the grain is ready. However, we
have no control over the growth of the seed. Paul
puts it beautifully when he says: “I planted the
seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making
it grow.” (1Corinthians 3: 6)
The Holy Spirit works in our lives, sometimes changing
us so slowly that we don’t really notice, until we
step back and take a look at where we are now,
compared to where we’ve been. Every time you
choose love instead of anger, generosity instead of
greed, work for another’s good instead of your
own, you are growing into the new creation. Every
time you set aside your own agenda and ask God
in all humility to show you God’s agenda, you are
becoming more and more like Christ.
No matter how small or insignificant its beginnings
may seem to you, just as the Kingdom of God is
growing around us, and sometimes it seems to be
growing invisibly, so the Kingdom of God is growing
inside us.
May this fill your mind and heart with gratitude.
Every blessing
