Explore The Potential Of The Seed

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory. John 1:1,14

The Word of God came into the earth in flesh form and His name was Jesus. God sent that Word who became flesh into the earth. It was productive! John 10:10 says, “He came so we can have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)!”

God did not give His Word to us for it to be inactive in our lives. He gave His Word to us so it could produce in us. What does it produces? It produces the Kingdom of God: Righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit! (Romans 14:17)

Religion says we are just going to leave everything up to God. That’s not how God works. God has put it in our hands.

When we are born, it is the result of the coming together of the seed of our father and egg from our mother. Our birth into this world is a wonderful miracle of life. So much promise and potential to begin our lives exists within us. As magnificent as this potential is and no matter how full our life is here on this earth, one day our body will return to dust, it decays. That is the nature of our earthly birth because that is the nature of our earthly father's seed. His seed is not eternal. It is no discredit to him; this is the reality of human reproduction.

Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever. 1 Peter 1:23

The word "corrupt" today perhaps does not communicate the true meaning, as we tend to think of it as "lack of integrity" or "dishonesty". Perhaps a better translation would be "perish", which means "to die, pass away, or to disappear". It does not necessarily mean something bad or negative, just that there is a point in time where it will cease to exist. In the case of our first birth, our soul life is temporal.

When a man or woman accepts Christ and is born again, they receive the Spirit of God. This new birth Spirit is incorruptible seed, and it makes us a son (or daughter) of God (see Romans 8:15-16). When we are born again it is incorruptible seed, and we become a child of God. This is a tremendous truth! Why are we children? Because it is seed. And because it is seed we cannot lose it any more than we can lose the seed of our earthly father.

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ... Romans 8:17. I can hardly begin to comprehend the statement "heirs of God" and the greatness of what that means. Here we are, just body and soul, we confess Romans 10:9 and 10 and are now body, soul, and spirit, and this new birth Spirit is seed. Because it is the seed of God in Christ in me, this seed is incorruptible, and it cannot decay, perish or otherwise cease to exist.

Just as we have all the potential that is part of our earthly father's seed, be it height, muscle, intellect, blue eyes -- we have all the potential that God gave in His new birth Spirit in His seed. We have eternal life, we are heirs of God, and we have many, many other wonderful benefits (for lack of a better word) because of the nature of this seed from God, our Heavenly Father.

How you choose to develop the spiritual side of your life and your personal relationship with God your Father, and live a life that is more than abundant, is dependent on how much of the Word of God you believe and apply in this life. We can choose to do nothing more after becoming born again, or we can choose to develop our Father/son (daughter) relationship.

How much do we know about our Heavenly Father? Who do we think He is? Is He cold and impersonal, or is He loving and caring? The only way to find out is to go to His Word and enjoy a life of discovery. How do we learn about people and develop a relationship with them? We spend time with them, talk with them, and do things together. God has given us His Word so that we may know Him.

This new-birth spirit has tremendous power. Believers in the first century Church healed others, raised people from the dead, moved the Word with an effectiveness perhaps not seen since, and did many other exploits. God has not changed in all these years, He is still in "business". Let us rise up and use the power we have as sons and daughters of God!

Do you need power in your life? Plant the seed of the word, the Word of God in your life. It will produce life. It will produce more than you could ever think or imagine. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20
