Balcony gardenplants.com cite the snake plant, also known as the mother-in-law’s tongue, in a study done at Naresuan University, Thailand validated it as one of the most oxygen producing indoor plants. It is able to absorb carbon dioxide at 0.49 ppm/m3 in the closed system, it emits oxygen and absorbs carbon dioxide at night. Other plants bringing oxygen to the home are the Areca Palm, Peace Lily, Pothos, Weeping Fig, Orchid, Christmas Cactus, Dumb Cane and Chrysanthemum. Other than food, oxygen is the life-giving gas that the human lives off.
No Oxygen, No Life. As a home requires plants to revive oxygen levels so the spirit requires Christian teaching, the Biblical text, Songs, and even other Christian activity and closeness, to revive the spiritual atmosphere through the Holy Spirit of God. Our spirits are revived by the reduction of sin, scandal, addiction, sickness by Godly intervention through what is good, clean, fresh, and holy.
Paul says in 2Corinthians 5:4 – 5 (GNB) While we live in this earthly tent, we groan with a feeling of oppression; it is not that we want to get rid of our earthly body, but that we want to have the heavenly one put on over us, so that what is mortal will be transformed by life.
God is the one who has prepared us for this change, and he gave us his Spirit as the guarantee of all that he has in store for us.
Dear Father, make me a person that creates spiritual oxygen, so that others my breathe, that they may be transformed from sinful to graceful, and from boring to pleasant, I ask it through Christ our Lord, Amen. Dr Cliff Ferguson – Shalom centurion.
