Word Seeds

The Word of God

is full of seeds

to be planted

 

And they are initially meant

to bring salvation

to the hearer

 

And from there,

to cause growth

and maturity

and fruit

 

But often times…

 

When The Word is brought to someone,

salvation is presented to them

 

but the enemy,

the devil,

snatches it away

 

and the person hears,

but they are not saved

 

And then sometimes

someone receives the Words with joy

 

but no roots grow

and the saved person

is dragged away by temptation

 

Then other times

the seed of the Word is heard

and the person is saved

 

but the worries

the riches

the pleasures

of this life

 

choke out the Word

and maturity is wanting

 

These three are ~

The Word along the path

The Word on rocky ground

and

The Word among the thorns

 

BUT

when the seed of the Word

falls on good soil

 

the soil of a noble and good heart

 

the hearer truly listens to the words,

retains the words,

and produces a crop,

rich with fruit

 

The Word

Heard

Planted

Growing

Multiplying

 

God’s Word is alive and active

and should be treated so

 

let it be planted

let it grow

There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.

 

– 2 Timothy 3:16,17 (MSG)

 

Let the words from the book of the law be always on your lips. Meditate on them day and night so that you may be careful to live by all that is written in it. If you do, as you make your way through this world, you will prosper and always find success.

– Joshua 1:8 (VOICE)

 

But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

– Matthew 4:4 (NLT)

 

I have hidden Your word in my heart,
    that I might not sin against You.

– Psalm 119:11 (NLT)

 

In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.

– John 1:1 (AMP)

 

Instead you thrill to God’s Word, you chew on Scripture day and night. You’re a tree replanted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, Never dropping a leaf, always in blossom.

– Psalm 1:2,3 (MSG)

 

For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.

– Hebrews 4:12 (AMP)
