07 Mar The Lord Put Seed In Creation
The Lord Put Seed in Creation.
“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
After God created all the things, He empowered vegetation, animals, fish, birds and man with the ability to reproduce after its kind. Nowhere, in the scripture are we told that God went into creation after the creating man. The power to reproduce was put in the seed.
The seed in its tiniest and inconspicuous form is full of life. It cannot be ignored in life. Every seed goes through a process of death before it can reproduce after its kind. The scripture says in John 12:24″Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit”
You don’t eat your seed; you preserve and sow for a hope of a bountiful harvest. You are a seed sown by your father, preserved and brought forth as child from your mother’s womb. Thank God the seed did not die nor was it aborted.
Today, as the seed of God, God expects much fruit from your life.
God put greater emphasis on the issue of bearing much fruit in the new creation. Bearing fruit brings glory to God. Christ said “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples” (John 15:8).
What fruits are you bearing today? Is it possible that when the Lord Jesus looks at you, would He find any fruit in you? Will it be few or many fruits? Is it possible that the fruit He finds in you is equivalent to all His investment in your life from birth to date? Is He satisfied with the state of your fruitfulness?
It is difficult to bear fruit without abiding in God. He is the source of life, and just like a river will dry up when cut off from its source so we become when we do not abide in Him.
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
Pray that your life as a seed of God will show forth the glory of God in fruit bearing.
