Being a Christian is like being a Pumpkin

Updated: Oct 19, 2018

Fall is most certainly upon us and we seeing more and more signs of harvest in progress!  We see the bright orange of pumpkins peeking through the pumpkin vines in the patches along the country roads.  Each year during “pumpkin season” I find meaning in the devotion below. I borrowed and adapt words from The Christian Working Woman. Scriptures from the Common English Bible are included to reinforce the message.

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin! God picks us from the patch, brings us in, and washes all the dirt off of us. 

John 15:16 – You didn’t choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you could go and produce fruit and so that your fruit could last.

Ephesians 1:4 – God chose us in Christ to be holy and blameless in God’s presence before the creation of the world.

1 Corinthians 6:11 – That is what some of you used to be! But you were washed clean, you were made holy to God, and you were made right with God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
