What kind of Seed; Are you planting?
Luke 8: 5-15
Luke 8:5: A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
Luke 8:6: And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
Luke 8:7: And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.
Luke 8:8: And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Luke 8:9: And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
Luke 8:10: And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
Luke 8:11: Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Luke 8:12: Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
Luke 8:13: They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
Luke 8:14: And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
Luke 8:15: But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
You will reap a Harvest.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Galatians 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
As a Christian; I believe; that I should be planting seeds for Jesus Christ.
This should be reflected in my life, in everything I choose to do and say.
Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
This is why our hearts must be changed.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new.
I choose to speak life.
Even; if I am only saying good morning!
Good Morning; have a blessed day!
I rarely say anything I do not really mean.
Words are very powerful.
Do not take them for granted.
We must give an account of every action and word we speak!
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
I must be first a partaker: in other words’ I must practice what I preach!
2 Timothy 2:6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
I must remain connected to the Vine, that is where I get my life from!
John 15:1 I AM the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
John 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Have you ever experienced; being purged?
