The Miracle of Planting!

Another miraculous time of planting here in Nebraska!  We still really don't how a seed planted in the earth sprouts and grows.  Science can describe the process, but it is still a mystery why this happens and who or what is the power to bring this about.  As those whose hearts are enlightened and belong to the kingdom of God, we know that Jesus Christ is the power who brings about this miracle.  That same power can work in the human heart through the seed of the gospel planted in good soil and accompanied by the water/rain of the Holy Spirit.  The question we all need to ask is this: Are our hearts receptive to Jesus' good, gracious, and holy words?  Will his words meet with faith and understanding in our hearts?

Mark 4:26-29

26 And he said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. 27 He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how. 28 The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. 29 But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
