Expanding on the Seed Principle

August 16th, 2015

Expanding on the Seed Principle               by Jay Meyer           August 15, 2015


Primary principle message:  Draw near to the Lord Now 

Gal 6. 7-10 : Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction;whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Sewing and reaping.   Sewing to the flesh ends up in corruption.   

Mark 4:26-29    He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. 27 Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. 28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.29 As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”

Spiritual progress is slow, so we need to have a daily pursuit of... Cultivating right actions to draw near to Him, so the seed of God will grow in us.

What is our life vision?  To be comfortable &secure or to actively pursue the Lord our God .  

We need a Spiritual vision.  

Prob 29;18 - Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;     but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.

 If we don't have one we aren't going anywhere spiritualy.    In the book of Revelation, the Laodicean church was a luke warm church, neither hot nor cold - they thought they had no problem with the Lord.

 Eph 5:14-21 - This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine,which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.


Here is a prescription for being awaken.  Be wise as to how we live.   What kind of seeds are we sewing on our lives. The things we do, the things we see.  Are they good things or bad things that we sew into our lives.  We must have a schedule spending time with the Lord, or else small things will rob of us of the time we spend with the Lord.  Our Spiritual growth happens over time , and only over time will we look back and see our growth.

Eph 5:16 ...because the days are evil

! John 5: 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

The forces of evil will rob our time. The natural tendency is to fall behind.   Have that clear vision and pursue God and we will bear fruit.  

Ephesians 5:18 - Do not get drunk on wine,which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,

Do not get influenced by wine or the world but be influenced by the Holy Spirit.   Do not quench the Holy Spirit. Seek to be filled and maintained with the Holy Spirit. 

Ephesians  5:19 - speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,

 We are convincing ourselves we're talking to a real person through practice..speaking to ourselves and others, builds a divine connection.  The more we do it (say I love you Lord),the easier it will become.  

Ephesians 5, Verse 20    always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Verse 19 was an invitation to dialog w the Lord.  Verse 20 The Lord would have us go to him instead of complaining...take the things that we can complain about, or criticize, ask Jesus for the change, then u can be thankful because u left it w the Lord. And continuing on the thing that isn't the way we want it. 

Verse 21.  The authority structure of Gov, church, home, Job,  the Lord says  to bring it to him. Thessalonians says come to me (Him) with the problem. Do everything as if  it onto me...  And you ll be able to maintain your relationship with the Lord.
