“The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world, and the good seed are the children of the kingdom…” Matthew 13:36-43 Though together we must walk and grow amongst the weeds in the fields of the world, we need not be intimidated by their attempts to control a field that does not belong to them. And so it is; we are sown into the world, we are nurtured by the Holy Spirit and we are strengthened by the grace of the God, according to his Word, and we flourish like the sun, even through the clouds, from age to age.
Whenever I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3
Consider this. What God has given us through Christ is the gift of his birthright. The spirit of God’s gift is love. The gift of God’s love poured out for us through his son Jesus Christ is meant to be mutual. That same spirit of love flows out of believers who have received God’s love within them. If we find our selves unable to love, then perhaps we are having a difficult time believing and trusting God’s love through Christ is given for us, and thus instead, we show suspicion, disdain or anger. Don’t allow the food of the world to be your strength. Know that God’s love is the birthright of the believer and live strengthened by its grace.
Birthright; Share God’s love; Food of the World
