As a Flower of the Field



As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.” (Ps. 103:15-16).

In this fleeting moment known as life on this earth, let us be diligent to open our hearts to the One Person who can offer us a life that is not fleeting, but rather is eternal. Jesus Christ offers His own life – everlasting life — to anyone who will receive Him as Lord. We can make our fleeting moment on this earth count for eternity if we will only allow the One who is “the way, the truth, and the life” to give us all of Himself.

Then once He has done so, He can live His life through us, showing forth His love and mercy to a multitude of others who pass through our lives. Like the flowers of the field, we give forth the aroma of the Lord Jesus, and we scatter our seed into the soil all around us. As a result, our short lives become invested into other lives, drawing them into a glorious eternity with the Lord as well. It’s amazing how many eternities can be determined by a single fleeting lifetime on earth, once it is wholly committed to the Lord.
