I loved the image when I first saw it but had a few questions. Is the colour natural? Has it been digitally, photographically enhanced? Is it a mutation? Scientifically produced?
The researched answers amazed and inspired me.
Because of a deep LOVE for the rose, growers desired to, in no way alter the structure, but knowing that the external beauty is fleeting, ensured the heart of the flower would remain a rose.
From the mortal structure of our humanity what can the DIVINE CREATOR bring forth in us if we surrender and pray.
Change my heart O Lord make it more like YOU. A-men
This is not about external beauty like the rose, but internal beauty which draws others to the Saviour.
Then, 1 John 3:2 will be a continuing process in us. all our lives on this earth.
‘Beloved now we are Children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be but we know that when HE is revealed , we shall be like HIM for we shall see HIM as HE is,
Everyone who has this hope in HIM purifies himself just as He is pure.
…Create in us ALL clean PURE HEARTS. A-men.
