Fundamentals of Christian Growth Part 12

We have seen that the Kingdom of God operates according to the principle of seedtime and harvest. The Word must be planted in our hearts and given time to grow. This is no different from the process a natural seed goes through to produce a natural harvest. 

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1 Peter 1:23

Jesus described four different types of ground in Mark 4. Each represents a different condition of the heart. Peter tells us that the Word of God is an incorruptible seed. Natural seeds can go bad but this cannot happen with “Word” seeds. 

The variance between each type of ground is not caused by the seed being planted in it. It is the heart in which God’s Word is planted in that determines how the seed will be able to grow. 

God’s seed has the exact same potential to produce harvest for every person who will ever live. There are Christians who believe that God’s Word will not work for them the same as it will for someone else. They are wrong. It will work regardless of anything we have done.

Far too many Christians have accepted their situation. They do not expect anything more from life and have no vision or concept of God’s plan. God has a plan for them that can only be accessed through His Word.

Ground provides a habitat for seed to grow. It does not determine what harvest will be produced by seed planted in it. We will experience harvest if we will continue to plant God’s Word in our hearts and then nurture it in prayer. 

The Word of God will literally transform our lives if we will plant it and give it time to grow. I was a complete failure in life before finding out these truths. My only natural ability seemed to be failure! God changed that through His Word when I stopped making excuses and started to plant by committing myself to prayer and meditation in the Word.

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the stars by the breath of His mouth.
Psalms 33:6

God spoke everything into existence. This is hard to grasp. He has given us His words that had enough power to speak the sun, moon, and stars into existence. We can take that Word, plant it in our hearts, and expect it to release His creative power in our lives!

For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Hebrews 4:2

God’s Word must be mixed with faith to release its power in our lives. 

God’s Word is incorruptible seed. There is no need that it cannot solve but we must plant it in our hearts and mix it with faith.
