Colours of Autumn

The colours of the leaves were particularly beautiful this autumn.  I once read, or heard someone say, that the green of summer leaves is caused by excessive chlorophyll (needed, of course, for growth) and it is only in the autumn that trees show their true, distinctive colours.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

I don’t know whether that is really the case for trees, but surely Christians, as they mature, should show more and more of the beauty of the Lord Jesus in their lives – by God’s grace, His true, distinctive colours become theirs.

 

 

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
