The Marks of a Mature Believer Series is a compilation of verses that go along with a sermon which highlighted just that – things or traits which make it apparent that evidence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit shows through in our daily lives. Many times we are faced with challenges which could be termed as having a “bad day”, which other pick up on EVER so quickly!  So, as we travel along our straight and narrow pathway of life, we must be careful to show forth these “marks” so to speak, such that the influence we make on other people, those closest around us and in our homes, these “ought” to show through.

There are fifteen (15) Orchid images used in this series, all of which are different and specifically chosen for each Scripture verse in which they are adorned.  Each of these were taken at a local nursery whose staff were kind enough to let me photograph them inside their beautiful glass house.  We purchase enough supplies and plants for them, they were not the least bit bothered at all…

Of those statements, the one that began this journey into the Great Pages of God’s Word is Revelation 2:7:

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.Revelation 2:7 | KJV

This entire set is about overcoming (overcometh), which could be thought of as being victorious and to conquer those things that we face daily in our lives.  The true “Marks” come when no one else is paying attention, or at least you don’t think they are, with which there is the conscience choice made that each of us will show through with a maturing reflective of our dedication and growth as Christians…
