TOPIC: The Living Seed [Open Heaven for Teens 16 July 2021]
MEMORISE: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
Read: Mark 4:26-29
- And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
- And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
- For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
- But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 19-21; Acts 19:21-41
In the parable of the sower, Jesus explained the different categories of people who receive the word of God. The last category is the seed which fell on good soil, had roots, germinated and brought forth good fruits. Note that the seed is the word of God and the soil is your heart. Whenever you hear the word of God, the process of planting takes place. So, for the seed to come alive in your heart, you must prepare your heart to receive it by being open minded. Dont try to second-guess the speaker when you hear the title of the message. Also, dont be so familiar with the word, God or the speaker that you put up a wall in your mind. Listen attentively to every message and meditate on it after because when you do, the word would be nurtured in your heart to bring forth fruit. Jesus said in John 15:7:
“If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
The word can only abide when you meditate, then, produce fruits which could either be in the form of repentance or positive change.
Lord, please make my heart fertile for Your word always.
