Wording of Tract 

 

Artists and poets have long been inspired by the beauty of flowers. Gardens and parks are places where we can enjoy a wide variety of flowers with their vivid colours and delightful scents, all combining to produce something truly beautiful.

What is the origin of flowers? Do flowers exist by design or by chance? Please do not give the credit for their existence to Darwin, whose theory has misled countless people. Darwin’s theory of evolution does not even begin to explain why molecules should arrange themselves into a flower. Flowers are not the random product of time and chance, but are part of God’s creation. In other words, flowers were God’s idea - He designed and created them.

We read in the Bible, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day” (Gen 1.11-13). Thus plant life and vegetation were created by God on the third day.

The Lord Jesus had something intriguing to say about the beauty of a flower, “Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these” (Luke 12.27).  This is a striking evaluation of a flower – in terms of beauty, it surpasses all the magnificence of the great King Solomon. But the Lord went on to direct our attention to a common feature of all flowers – they have a relatively short

life.

The Bible uses the short life of a flower as a picture of our own mortality, “For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: but the word of the Lord endureth for ever” (1 Peter 1.24-25).

Many people live their lives as if they are going to live forever. This is a disastrous mistake.  We must face up to the all important question –

Where is my life taking me?  In other words, am I ready to die and to meet God?  Am I still in my sins or have I been forgiven through faith in Christ?  The Bible tells us that our choice in this life will determine our destiny in the next life, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3.36). Remember that our life will pass very quickly, just like that of a flower. In view of the certainty that one day you will leave this world and enter eternity, we urge you to trust Christ now as your only Saviour and Lord, before the opportunity is lost forever. J.F.P.
