"Then God said, 'Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.' And it was so" (NIV).
Genesis 1:11 (NIV)
Bird of Paradise
With this plant, the Bird of Paradise, He certainly did it up right. What an example of His beauty this is. It's huge, and its's just one flower. Other flowers He has created contain many blossoms gathered in one bunch, but He put it all in one startling combination in this unique plant. Once you've seen a Bird of Paradise, you don't forget it. It is unforgettable. Once you've met Jesus, you don't forget him either. He is unforgettable, and He gives the gifts of salvation, grace, mercy, love and peace, gifts that don't last a lifetime, but rather for eternity. God loves us so much that He gave His "only begotten Son,": Jesus, as payment for all our sins, so that we may dwell with Him for all eternity. If you have never stopped to think seriously about John 3:16, now's the time. If you have questions after you've read it, let me know, or let a pastor know, and have it thoroughly explained.
