What type of fruit are you producing?
Perennials or Annuals?
You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain….. John 15:16
One of the advantages of living in this region is that we have the opportunity to experience the distinct changes in the weather temperatures. Accompanying those “seasons” are also a variety of flowers. Some of which are classified as perennials, while others as annuals. Both are capable of producing an array of blooming plants. Although many plants will continue to bloom throughout the summer – with the arrival of the colder temperatures the distinction will be revealed.
Perennials are those faithful plants that are able to endure the winter temperatures and remain unaffected by the cold. It doesn’t matter how bitterly cold the temperatures, nor how much snow falls during the winter season; those perennials will return year, after year, after year. Even some of the early spring perennials will begin to bloom in the snow – because they have been made to endure.
Now on the other hand we have those annuals. These are the flowering plants that we must purchase yearly. Although many can endure the heat of the summer – when the temperatures begin to dip – so will they. These tend to be those “fussy” plants. Some of them like and thrive in the sunny sections of the garden; while others enjoy the shadier sections. Some enjoy daily waterings; while others will survive the heat of the summer days. Nevertheless, they are beautiful – but only for one season. It doesn’t matter what type of soil you plant them in, nor the mixture of food you give to them – when the temperatures begin to change – so will they.
Now… at this point you should already be able to anticipate the questions for today….which are:
1. What type of plant do you believe yourself to be perennial or annual?
2. What type would others consider you to be?
3. What facts or truths can be presented as evidence to support or confirm your status?
4. What would be the basis for your responses?
God has equipped us ALL to be “Perennial Saints”. (II Timothy 2:3). His desire and plan for us is that we learn how to “take a lick and keep on tickin”. We must never permit the “winter season” in their lives to have the ability to prevent us from being the: faithful, dependable, loyal, committed, dedicated and true person that God has already fortified us to be.
