Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

bonsai...



bonsai
truth, goodness, and beauty

Precisely cultivated and refined...
pruned to keep only that which is desired.

And put on the new nature (the regenerate self)
created in God's image, [Godlike]
in true righteousness and holiness.”
- Ephesians 4:24 AMP

What should be the same about all Christians and is true of all Bonsai, is that ideally they look like smaller replicas of the original. The ultimate goal of a Bonsai grower is that when someone looks at one of their trees they don't say, “Oh a Bonsai”, but that they say, “THAT LOOKS JUST LIKE A REAL TREE". The ultimate goal then should be when someone looks at my life as a Christian is not that they say, “Oh a Christian”, but that they say, "HE LOOKS JUST LIKE JESUS”

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” - Colossians 2:6
