They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” (Psalm 92:14-15 NIV)
Aging is a part of the journey.
It is a daily reminder that every day we are here, we are one day closer to heaven.
In Christ, your body will get old but your spirit will not. Your body will get weak but your spirit can get stronger.
In Christ, age is not an indication of fruitfulness, unless of course it is to bear more fruit, fresh fruit and the sweetest fruit of the Spirit.
In Christ, there is no such thing as “too old” to be used by God or too old to bear rich spiritual fruit.
Instead of making lists for what you what to do before you get too old, what if you listed what fruit fresh you want to bear in it?
– fresh love,
– overflowing joyfulness
– soul deep peacefulness
– growing in kindness
– exemplifying patience
– grace filled gentleness
– cultivated faithfulness
– practiced and practical
There is no age limit on transformation in Christ. No age limit to being filled to the brim with His Spirit.
Begin today and never stop.
Begin to grasp that the closer you get to heaven the fresher the fruit of the Spirit will be.
