Planting Your Seeds!

Updated on November 6, 2009

I love planting gardens in the spring. Little seeds planted in dirt and watered turn into beautiful plants and flowers. With the right amount of sun, water, food and love we can watch something beautiful arise from our attention. God's touch does amazing things. His love can also turn us into someone we never thought we can be.

His light shining in us gives us a chance to plant a differant kind of seed. When we witness to others who don't have a relationship with Christ we plant a seed of love. We introduce them to the only One who can change them and their lives.

God gives us resources to use and invest for Him. Paul uses this illustration, see ( 2 corinthians 9:10 ) of seed to explain that the resources God gives us are not to be hidden, foolishly devoured, or thrown away. Instead, they should be cultivated in order to produce more crops. When we invest what God has given us in his work, he will provide us with even more to give in his service.

      We are the seed. God has planted in us what we are to nourish and water so that we may plant the same seed in non Christians and Christians that have fallen on the side.

      By going to church, each and every service, if we plant that same seed that was given to us by GOD, then we are doing his work for him. We are the feet that walks for GOD, we are the hands that give the seed in encouragement, we are the mouths that spread the word.

      But going to church, whether every service or not, no more makes you a christian, than wearing an costume of a donkey makes you a donkey.

      We are GOD's hands, feet and mouths. If we don't use what GOD has given us to speak his words we are the same as the ones that don't believe or do, but don't do his works.

      It is so awesome how God speaks to us as we go about our daily business. The message in even planting in our gardens is a reminder of His mighty power in the lives of those who love Him. Thank you for listening to Him and sharing with us.
