WORD TO PONDER: TO LIVE AS A LIVING SACRIFICE
I have promised that seed planted shall bring forth
fruit after its own kind and it shall prosper and
accomplish My intent. When you plant good seeds, they
have the same potential to bring forth a huge harvest of
what you planted. While you are on earth, it is your
time to plant seeds of love through prayer, faith,
deeds, and good Words. The harvest of your planted seeds
continues throughout eternity even after you die.
Your time on earth is a very important window of
opportunity. Even prayers for others in your last day
alive on earth can make a difference to generations.
Some choose to live and choose to stay at great cost,
knowing the opportunity of even one more day to plant
seeds into the earth.
Phil 1:21-26 NLT
For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying
is even better. 22 But if I live, I can do more fruitful
work for Christ. So I really don't know which is better.
23 I'm torn between two desires: I long to go and be
with Christ, which would be far better for me. 24 But
for your sakes, it is better that I continue to live. 25
Knowing this, I am convinced that I will remain alive so
I can continue to help all of you grow and experience
the joy of your faith.
Isa 55:10-11 NKJV
"For as the rain comes down, and the snow from
heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed
to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be
that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me
void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it
shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Gen 1:11-13 NKJV
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the
herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields
fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on
the earth"; and it was so. And the earth brought forth
grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind,
and the tree that yields fruit , whose seed is in itself
according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So
the evening and the morning were the third day.
