POLLINATION IS NEEDED TO REPRODUCE
A BIT OF YOU IS LEFT BEHIND TO ENRICH THE OTHER PERSON
AS I WAS PREPARING I KEPT COMING BACK TO THIS SCRIPTURE:
2 Corinthians 5:11–21 NIV
Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! NIV
Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. RSV
2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
WE DONT SEE THE POLLINATION HAPPENING IN A FLOWER UNLESS YOU HAVE A TIMED CAMERA POINTED ON THE FLOWER AND ARE ABLE TO CAPTURE IT.
BUT THE FRUIT IS PROOF OF IT.
FROM FLOWER TO FRUIT TAKES TIME
IN POLLINATION ONCE THE POLLEN TOUCHES THE OVULE IT BECOMES A SEED AND THAT SEED GROWS INTO THE FRUIT
BUT THAT MEANS THE DEATH OF THE FLOWER
THE FRUIT GROWS AND RIPENS/MATURES
SO YOU SEE THE OLD PASSES AWAY AND THE NEW HAS COME
I RECEIVED AN UPDATE FROM THE RAPID RESPONSE TEAM MANAGER
TELL OF DEVOTION FROM MERLE -
SAME VERSE
SHARED THAT AS HE COMMITTED HIS LIFE TO GOD
FELT NO CHANGE
REALISED THAT IT WAS HIS SPIRIT THAT WAS TOUCHED
Then after great counsel from others I realized, on that day I accepted Jesus into my life it was my spirit that instantly changed.  My physical and emotional is still catching up.  But in the spirit I am NEW, able to walk in the freedom I was given because of Father Gods love for me and Jesus’s sacrifice.  I wish I could tell you I no longer sin, but scripture also tells us if I say this I am not speaking the truth . Oh the JOY we all have.”
2 Corinthians 3:18 ESV
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:17–18 NIV
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
WHEN THE BLOOD OF JESUS TOUCHED ME, I WAS CHANGED FOREVER
-19
MY ENRICHMENT COMES FROM THE KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST DYING FOR ME.
