See His SON!
Now, here’s the main point, and you’ll understand many other things that we haven’t talked about if you understand this main point. You’ll see it throughout Revelation. You’ll see it throughout the Hebrews letter. If your eyes are open, you’ll see again and again and again that Jesus is the fulfillment at a higher level of everything in the law. That’s why Paul could say, “I fear I’ve wasted my time on you, if you esteem or count holy one day above another day. If we continue to play around on the low level, ripping off parts of the contract, God says, “I fear I’ve wasted my time on you, because you’ve not seen my Son yet.”
The seed is the Word. The Word is only a seed. We aren’t asking you to believe all these things. We’re not even asking you to agree with all of these things. We’re only asking you to sow the seeds deep in your heart and see what God brings out of that and how He increases it. Be like Mary after she heard the angel singing, and she heard from Simeon and Anna, and she saw the Glory of God and the sky full of angels. Mary “treasured these things in her heart.” We’re not asking you to agree or to go tell other people about these things. We’re asking you to sow the seed of the Word of God in your heart and just see what kind of beautiful flowers God will grow in His own time.
Paul said you will stand or fall before your own master. If you don’t hear the words of God, that’s between you and God. If you do hear them, then He will do something special and unique in you. We’re not trying to collect people who agree. So we treasure in our heart things that God brings us. And like Jesus said about the farmer who sowed the seed and went to bed, the crop of God—the life of God—grew, he knew not how. That is what we all do with our lives. We lay our lives before God, we sow the seed, we water, and we see what beautiful flower He wants us to be. We’re not trying to agree. We’re all trying to humble ourselves before God and wait and see what He does in us. If we fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and the Completer of our faith, He will complete what He began in us.
