No Ordinary Apple
Fruits! Fruits! Fruits!
Some people like apples or oranges. Some even grapes. What is your favourite fruit?
Apple is a popular choice because it is nutritious providing a rich source of vitamin c and fibre. Ofcourse we all know the saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
But did you know that apple, a favourite fruit of many is referred to in the bible as well?
This extra ordinary fruit is used to show just how important you are to God. You are the apple of God’s eye! Apple is seen by many to be the central point or pupil or focus. That part of the eye that is securely protected. Rest assured that right now where you are, no matter what situation you are in God knows you. God loves you. You are in His focus. He cares about you. You are precious to Him! He has not forgotten you.
You are extra special! One of a kind! So why worry? Why fear? You are no ordinary apple!
God has a way of showing up and delivering His children. Have you ever stopped to consider just how much God loves you? God loves you with an everlasting love, a love that is unconditional, “agapē”. He woke you up this morning and it is only because of His grace and mercy why you were able to see another day.
If we could attach a price to ourselves, how much do you think you would be valued? Jesus paid the price for our sins. The creator of the universe died in our place. We are of infinite value to God! We are the apple of His eyes.
No wonder He has blessed us tremendously. But many times we dwell on obstacles or trials and forget the blessings that we have been given. We forget that God has blessed us with life, health, family, friends, food, clothing, shelter, talents and the list goes on. We tend to forget that everything we have is because of God’s love. In fact, the very reason we are here is because of His grace.
Family, lets pledge to spend more time with God. He loves you and He wants to hear from you. He was willing to sacrifice His life for you. Are you willing to sacrifice some time for Him?
