“And Jesus said: So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the earth, And should sleep, and rise, night and day, and the seed should spring, and grow up whilst he knoweth not. For the earth of itself bringeth forth fruit, first the blade, then the ear, afterward the full corn in the ear. And when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. And He said: To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? or to what parable shall we compare it? It is as a grain of mustard seed: which when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that are in the earth: And when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches, so that the birds of the air may dwell under the shadow thereof. And with many such parables, He spoke to them the word, according as they were able to hear. And without parable He did not speak unto them; but apart, He explained all things to His disciples.”
My dearest beloved brethren, our road to the kingdom of God takes a gradual process that comes in stages. Hearing and accepting the Words of God are two of the initial stages and like the seed planted in the field or garden that requires irrigation/water and fertile soil/ground to sprout, we need to continue to listen to and hear the Words of God and make them parts of lives for them to become our own ways of life.
I pray for us not to allow the burning desires in us to be very close to God, to quench, through the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.
You heard and received the Words of God and you have nursed them and made them grow strong in you. Christ’s ways are your absolute ways and the Kingdom of God is clearly for you, dear God’s beloved children.
The Words of God are the seeds we plant in our hearts and souls. But to nourish our souls, we have to make sure that we provide the Words of God the fertile soils, water and manure to grow and just like we need to weed out the weeds that grew with the crops we planted in our gardens or farms, to let the crops grow well and bring out excellent harvest, we also need to weed out the bad words and seeds and things that mixed up with the good Words of God planted in our hearts and souls, so that our lives will focus mainly on following Christ’s ways of life.
Some of these weeds that disturb the great Words of God in us include all the vices, bad associations, looking at bad and ungodly things/images/pictures, engaging in unholy conversations that do us no good, and so on.
At the same time, we should provide the Words of God with everything that they need to transform our lives. Such things include constantly listening to the Words of God, attending Masses and going to Church daily so that our personal relationships with God will be stronger, reading the Bible daily, confessing our sins, having distaste for all evils, loving ourselves and our neighbors and of course our God, and most importantly making prayers and prayers and prayers the most important parts of our daily lives.
I pray that we all receive the Holy Ghost in our lives to help us drive Satan and his evil ways and his evil agents from our lives today and every day of our lives, so that nothing will prevent us from entering the Kingdom of God in Heaven, through the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.
Be courageous and fearless in the Lord; for God is with you. You’re blessed; remain blessed!!!
