Weekly Sermon Summary

Seed is Light Food Comfort - (11.22.20 - Mt. 13)

 

Dear St. Paul family,

(audio/video Seed is Light Food & Comfort

Cornerstone - Life & Lessons of Moses - 10 Commandments)

(Advent reading plan enclosed, reading together on zoom link daily at 7:00pm)

 
The gospel is from Mt. 13:1-9, the parable of the Sower and Seed.
 
The parable of the Sower is explained by Christ explaining to us that the Sower is God, the Seed is the Word of God and they were spread on four soils.
 
The seed is potential. It starts small but inside it has potential for greatness.
 
One author mentioned is light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you.
 

  1. Light to direct you

    • His word is light and a lamp guiding and directing me daily

    • We make 35,000 decisions/day, so we need the Word of God to give us guidance on His will, in our relationships in behavior I should have.

 

  1. Food to support you

    • Jesus said that we shall not live by bread alone and that He is the bread of life.

    • Just as we should seek superfoods to fuel our body, we should seek the Word of God to fuel our Spirit

    • Every time I read that I should not fear, that He is with me, that He will fight for me, it supports me daily.

 

  1. Comfort to cheer you

    • The Word of God gives us cheer, in His presence is fullness of joy.

    • Comfort verses like I can do all things through Christ, like I can cast all my care upon Him, like coming to Him for rest – all these comforts me.

 
This is our potential with the seed, namely the Seed or Word of God as it gives light to direct me, food to support me and comfort to cheer me up.
