The Code is within the Seed
“And He spoke many things to them in parables, saying, “Behold, the sower went out to sow; and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. Others fell on the rocky places, where they did not have much soil; and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. But when the sun had risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. Others fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them out. And others fell on the good soil and yielded a crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.””
~ Matthew 13: 3~9
This parable can be viewed in several ways, we can look at this inwardly, understanding that we have all had various soil conditions from time to time. Or we have areas of our lives that are less fertile to the Seed than others. This brings to bear our need for humility before the Lord, seeking to have an open heart before Him, this condition allows for the Seed to take root. We all have areas within that are infertile to the Seed, this brings the need for searching our hearts, this is exactly what the Lord is seeking, our willingness to have and open heart before Him.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart;Try me and know my anxious thoughts;And see if there be any hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.”
~ Psalm 139:23, 24
The seed does not look like the fruit that it will bear, yet it contains the DNA, the code for the fruit. Once the seed in planted in fertile soil and with proper conditions the seed becomes the plant that yields the fruit, bearing the image the likeness of the fruit.
This is the code of Life.
