Seed Purity

Seed Purity
Monday, December 06, 2010

Would you purchase seeds of your desired plants contaminated with weed seed?

What is a “weed”? A weed is a plant out of place, an undesired plant in that field. Weed seeds mixed in with the desired seed, produce a mess; a bunch of undesired plants in the field. Weeds are unsightly, while also damaging to the intended crop. Weeds consume water, nutrients and sunlight; lessening the volume of each component for your desired crop. Weeds reduce yield, and if left uncheck will eventually take over a field, making it virtually impossible for the desired crop to grow. In Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43, Jesus explains that at harvest, the weeds are gathered, bundled and burned. In 13:41 Jesus also explains that weeds cause sin and must be removed before they reduce yield.

Now with a brief back ground on the disastrous effects from weeds, let’s consider the initial question again. Would you purchase seed containing weed seed? Good, neither will I.

The seed industry includes purity on the tag of a bag of seed. The top seed companies establish 99.5% purity as industry standards; anything less pure results in consumer avoidance. Farmers desire pure seed!

Do Christians desire pure seed? Do we desire the pure Word of God? Yes! The evidence is revealed in church membership shifts. In recent years, membership has grown in churches who acknowledge scripture as the pure Word of God, while declining in churches who doubt the purity of God’s Word, the purity of scripture. The church with leaders dispelling the purity of God’s Word; are “selling” contaminated seed. In proclaiming the impurity of scripture, God's Word, they are dispersing seed containing significant weed seed. This weed seed causes sin, reducing yield. Christians desiring profitable crops avoid planting this seed, just like good farmers; they want contaminated seed kept off their farms.

The best crop yields begin with planting pure seed in your fields. The best life yields with Christ, begin with planting the Pure Word of God in your heart, soul and mind. Seek and plant pure seed, the pure Word of God!

See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with Christ!
