WHICH SEED ARE YOU?

In our daily walk with God, one thing that can never be avoided is the obstacles that spring up along the way. Ten percent of life is made up of things and incidents we cannot control, whilst the other ninety percent is how we react to them. This is what determines who we become and why we're so different from each other. Hence how someone reacts to an obstacle in their way determines who they become - do I emerge the stronger or the weaker through this?

In Jesus' parable of the Sower and the Seed, he speaks about a sower, who represents God, dropping seeds over four types of land - pathways, rocky ground, thorn plants and good soil. The seeds that fell along the different types of land produced different results.

The ones that fell along the pathway were stepped on or gobbled up by hungry birds. This stood for those who heard God's word, but allowed the devil to come and blacken their hearts in order to keep them from believing and being saved.

The seeds that fell onto rocky ground sprouted, true, but very quickly they dried up and died because there was no moisture in the ground to help them grow. In the same way, this stands for the people who have heard God's word and they receive it gladly at first, singing praises and jumping and dancing. But when a time for testing of their faith comes, they cripple and fall.

Then we have the seeds that fell amongst the thorns. While the seeds were able to sprout and grow, they grew alongside the sharp thorns and eventually were choked up by them from all directions. What this means is that there are people who have heard the Word, but they are far too distracted by the things of this world and therefore end up choking themselves. Hence their fruit will never ripen.

Finally we have the seeds that fall onto good, healthy, brown, moist soil. The seeds of course grow up into beautiful tall healthy plants, bearing good fruit. Jesus explains that this stands for people who have heard God's word, not only receive it gladly, but retain it with good and obedient hearts. Though tests or trials are flung at them, they persist and preservere until they bear good, tasty fruit.

Now comes the time for you as a Christian to do a reflection and really ask yourself:

Am I the seed that falls along the path, letting the devil take control of me and everything I do?

Am I the seed that falls on rocky ground, when I'm given the opportunity to hear God's word, but I am like a 'Convenient Christian' and only praise Him when things are comfortable and going well and all right for me?

Am I the seed that even falls amongst the thorns, distracted by things of this world like money, romance, computer games or so many other things till I forget where to look for God at all and neglect my time with him completely?

Or am I the seed that falls along the good soil, grows and flourishes into beautiful plants that bear good harvest, harvest that will feed thousands and help them to grow too?

Because it only takes one plant. . .

. . . to grow into many plants . . .
. . . and become an enormous field of good harvest and fruit.

Revelation 1:3
King James Version (KJV)

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Words of Encouragement
For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. (Jeremiah 29:11,12) So ...whenever we are in need, we should come bravely before the throne of our merciful God. There we will be treated with undeserved kindness, and we will find help. (Hebrews 4:16)
Live under the protection of God Most High and stay in the shadow of the All Powerful God. Then you will say to the LORD, "You are my fortress, my place of safety; you are my God, and I trust you."(Psalm 91:1-2) Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. (Psalm 91:3,5,6 ) Jesus said, ?Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27)

The most important decision a person can make is where they will spend eternity. Will you go to Heaven and spend eternity with God? OR will you go to Hell and spend eternity separated from God? When you ask the average person that question they will usually say Heaven. You ask them why they believe that and you will get many answers? I am good person, or I go to Church, or I give to charity, or I have been baptised, or many others. If you ask God who will go to Heaven He tells us through His Word (The Bible) that only those who are born again will go to Heaven when they die. Only those who's sins are forgiven will get to go to Heaven. The Bible is also very clear that the only payment that is acceptable to God is that blood of his son Jesus-Christ. Your good works are not good enough.
