26 Jesus also said, ďThe Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground.27 Night and day, while heís asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens.28 The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens.29 And as soon as the grain is ready, the farmer comes and harvests it with a sickle, for the harvest time has come.Ē
Mark 4:26-29 (NLT)

It talks about how the kingdom of God is formed. As I read it I had to pray for understanding because as straight forward as it seems it can be a little vague and confusing it might make someone believe they have no part in what happens as far as the spreading of the gospel and the growth of the Kingdom. Yet when we look at the first verse we are the farmers our job is to go out and sow the seed everywhere we go. It is the responsibility of the Holy Spirit to grow that seed until Jesus Comes for the harvest.

The world has changed a lot from the time of this parable and we have so much more knowledge of the workings of things like plant growth and often we try to apply that knowledge to our spreading of the Gospel. We know that every seed that will produce is actually alive but in a dormant state. We understand that the right combinations of fertilizer, rain and weather will determine the best growth and yield from a crop. We see farmers today with degrees in bioengineering working to improve the certain characteristics of the plant so it can produce more and create a better yield. The problem is food today is often bland and has very little if any flavor. There are fewer and fewer varieties available unless you look for what are called heirloom seeds. So now we have a cookie cutter agriculture which still produces food but lacks flavor.

This also happens in our churches people have made millions off of trying to figure out a better way to do church. Instead of focusing on what Godís word says. We have created an entertainment giant were people come to be entertained not grown. We spend big money to go to a sporting event and hope it goes into overtime and put $10 dollars in the offering plate and pray the preacher watches the time and letís out early. Maybe I am an heirloom I am so tired of going to church to be entertained I desire to be cultivated and grown again. As much as I love music and worship nothing can or will grow you like the Word of God. I hope and pray that wherever you attend church today you approach it with the mindset of it is more than entertainment. I pray God moves in your services today and that you begin to experience the flavor that is available as you experience that heirloom type relationship with Christ.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
