Buy the truth and sell it not. Prov. 23:23

The Seed Is The Kingdom

If you planted a kernel of corn what would you expect to grow?  You don’t have to be a rocket scientist or a farmer to answer that, do you?  One of the wonderful things that God set in motion when He created the world was the principle that seeds produce after their kind. In other words, a kernel of corn produces corn, a tomato seed produces tomatoes, and an acorn produces an oak tree.  Imagine the confusion if that wasn’t the case.

God’s word is likened to a seed (Luke 8:11-15).  If the word of God is planted into the proper kind of heart it will produce something.  Produce what? Read in the book of Acts the numerous accounts of the word being planted in the hearts of honest, truth-loving, humble people, and you will see that the “seed” produced just Christians.  What if one took the same word today and planted it into the same kind of heart.  What would it produce? That kernel of corn will produce just corn.  Further, it will produce just that variety of corn.  To produce even another variety one must plant a different seed.  God’s word produces just Christians; it does not produce varieties of Christians.

God’s word produces just Christians.  Different seeds produce different plants.  So, if something different “comes up” it is obvious that something different was “planted” or taught.

Matthew 15:13  But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 

 


A corn kernel will always produce a corn plant.




The Word of God - implanted in the 'good' soil, will always produce a Christian, and just a Christian.
