With Jesus in the Glory Seed Garden…
Change is in the air…
Change is in the air I have decided to do a minor change in the Glory Seed Devotionals, you’ve probably already noticed some of the changes at the top of the page. I have been thinking about the slogan on the Blog “Planting seeds of Glory for the LORD” create an imaginary Glory Seed Garden where the seeds are planted. Yet as imaginary as the Garden is it actually exists in your spirit/heart, the Glory Seed Garden in your life and mine. The apostle Paul puts it this way. “So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God’s coworkers. You are God’s field, God’s building.” (1 Corinthians 3:7–9, CSB)
Gardens have a special place in the bible. Life as we know it began in a garden, the Garden of Eden. And it was in the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus opened the road that leads to eternal life for us.
“…but only God who gives the growth.” I would be willing to bet if a seed could somehow come back and tell us what it’s like have its hard shell slowly burst open, it would tell us it was not a painless experience. Jesus sets us straight not only when it comes seeds but our lives as well. “Jesus replied to them, “Truly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains by itself. But if it dies, it produces much fruit.” (John 12:24, CSB)
Come to the Glory Seed Garden, come alone or bring a friend.
Come away from the thorn and thistle infested wilderness and rest awhile.
Breathe the Garden’s Fresh Air, experience the touch of the Master’s Hand.
Feel the Holy Spirit gently plant Glory Seeds in the Soil of your heart.
Experience the soft golden glow of Heaven’s Light.
Enjoy the gentle songs of Peace sang by the Angel Chorus.
Feel the exhilaration as the seed dies giving way to Life .
And savor the flavor of God’s Sweet Salvation!
God gives the seed, we plant the seed in the Glory Seed Garden (you, the reader), Jesus gives the seed life, and the Holy Spirt makes it grow.
Jesus… Don’t face the future without Him!
Grace and PEACE,
