The Angels asked me to write on the Gospels on Sundays- so here is the Gospel for Today and a Divinely Inspired Message behind it:
The Parable of the Growing Seed
Jesus said to the crowds, “This is how it is with the kingdom of God. It is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land, and would sleep and rise, night and day and through it all the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord, the land yields fruit, first the blade , then the ear, then the full full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, because the harvest has come.”
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
He said, “To What shall we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable can we use to for it? It is like a mustard seed, that when it is sown into the ground, is the smallest of all seeds on Earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of all plants and puts forth large branches so that the birds in the sky can dwell in its shade.
With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as they were able to understand it. Without parables, he did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything in private.
The Kingdom of God is bountiful. The seed of God is the Word of God , and planting a seed for God, means to take the Word and and speak it , write it , teach it , share it. The key phrase in the first part of today’s gospel is that the seed, “grows on its own, Of its own accord grows abundantly” spoken through Jesus. The Words of God have abundant life. The Word of God is already fully mature and when planted in our hearts and the hearts of others, the Word , having life of its own , will produce abundant fruit within ourselves, within others, within the Entire Kingdom of God. This is because the Word of God has everlasting Life.
Has someone ever told you something , that stayed with you? Maybe you were told to keep the faith , and you did, and that faith matured and produced righteousness? Perhaps someone said to love one another as Jesus loves you and you took that into your heart and decided that from that point on, you would try to love, as Jesus loves us, with unconditional compassion and understanding. If you acted upon those words, they not only produced much fruit, but they also produced treasure. Those are words of everlasting life taking root and growing to full spiritual maturity~as the Word Of God will, in all of us, when spoken, heard and acted upon.
The second parable is like the first, Jesus explains that the Kingdom and Word of God is bountiful, providing abundant life for everyone. Flourishing in fruit and eternal life for the entire kingdom.
When we plant the Word, those words have everlasting life. Even if it doesn’t appear that they are producing fruit on the outside, trust in the Word that something amazing and abundant is growing on the inside~ so abundant, that everyone in the Kingdom will benefit when the Word is sown.
In Jesus Name
