To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven.
As we celebrated the close of summer and enter the autumn season of the year, we can reflect on how our personal and spiritual lives are in seasons and each season of life has a distinct purpose designed by God the Father.
Let's reflect on the beauty that each season carries and the beautiful array of colors from each. Spring is filled with greenery and is looked upon as the new beginning. Summer is known for its growth and cultivating the new plant/believer. Fall is a time of harvesting; when colors change and leaves fall from the tree. This is a maturing time for believers as they take on leadership roles in the church. Winter is the time of resting because the harvest has been gathered and in the barns. Spiritually this is the season when older adult Christians are stepping aside for the mature believers to take the reigns of leadership. Winter seasoned Christians are providing wise counsel to the younger Christians.
Regardless of what season of life we are in we are to glorify God as we present ourselves as holy sacrifices to God. This is accomplished by yielding control to the indwelling Holy Spirit; He dwells within to help us fulfill God's purpose in our lives.
Living in the beauty of our season, believers will display the beautiful array of colorful fruit of spiritual growth.
