Late Spring, I enjoy mangos. They come off my tree in my backyard. Early Autumn, my friends & family delights in avocados. They also came from a tree in my backyard. In everything there is a season. Ecclesiastes 3:3 & 4—"a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing…” There is a Spring for the month of May here in the USA. There is a cold December to embrace the New Years after a white Christmas for all of us here in America. We have a culture here in this country of The United States. We have a great country with roots, cuisine, music, arts, dance, theaters, monuments, mountains, rivers, canyons, beaches, philodendron, desert, swamps, forest fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, water… bodies and bodies of water. We have a great land here in the United States. We are a season in the great years of the present generation.
The original seven churches in the province of Asia were in season during the youth years of Jesus Christ ministry. This culture clothes the body- the church, the community. A book was made from each letter address to every one of the churches.
Ephesians- Ephesus/ Philippians- Smyrna/ Corinthians- Pergamum/ Galatians- Thyatira/ Romans- Sardis/ Thessalonians- Philadelphia/ Colossians- Laodicea.
I want to focus on each culture, each personal season which gives fragrance to the Word which Jesus used to mark decree among His holy body. I want to grow deeper into the season that formed roots towards the Book of Acts. We’ve spent much time focusing on the fruits during the era of the first four written years of my blog, now let’s graze further into His garden. Let’s embrace each Season.
