Scripture: Mark 4:26-29
Verses 26-29 state, “And He said, ‘The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.’” The Kingdom works on the seed harvest principle of cultivation. Ten acres of corn under good cultivation which includes weeding, watering, removing the stones and cutting out the thorns will produce more than twenty acres with no cultivation. Are we weeding, watering and removing stones? The thorns are all the things that hinder our time in God’s word. The real question is, because this is the entire foundation of the Kingdom, what are we doing with this application of biblical truth? Do we say yes to God’s judgments? Do we say yes to the ultimate authoritarian side of God’s word? For so many today, truth is relative. Jesus, Muhammad and Buddha are about equal. Jesus is not a truth, He is the truth. His truth says the wages of sin is death. Our good news is that Jesus conquered death, but man must turn loose of their sin to receive Him. Are we ready to embrace absolute truth, weed it, water it and take the stones out, so that it can product 30, 60 and a hundred-fold in us?
