Within you is life.

If you’re a child of God, you carry the most precious commodity on earth…life. Not just physical breath passed down from Adam, but spiritual life from the Second Adam-Jesus (Romans 5:12-21). As we go, the joy of the Lord and the seeds of life go with us. Jesus compared His kingdom to a mustard seed:

“What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and it grew and became a large tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches.” – Luke 13:18-19 NKJV

He then compared it to leaven, working its way through three measures of meal. In both descriptions, there is something very tiny bringing newness, change and substance.

As we move through the day, our words, actions, and demeanor have great potential. There is life in us; may we carry it well.
