So Wheat or Weed?

On September 24, 2013 by Jeremy Durdel

Matthew 13:24-30 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'”
So again, I guess, I have to ask the question are you wheat or weed? Have you examined yourself to know that you are in the faith? 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?-unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
Do you see evidence of God living in side you, transforming you, finishing a work He has started in you. 1 John 3:9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. 2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. Philippians 1:6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Have you ever put a plant in a window or on a porch, and realized it has a tendency to grow toward the light. Well indeed that same thing happens to one who has truly been born again. I can’t explain it, it just happens, everything inside you says grow towards the light. In our case though, it is not the sun light that we are growing towards, it’s the Son light. As Gods Love, Grace, and Mercy rain down from heaven on us, even though we are not yet what He is, on that day when we see Him face to face, we will be like Him. Praise God and Amen!!! I cannot wait till we are all changed in the twinkling of an eye, when we are at that point forever changed and in His presents forever.
My goal in writing these posts is to help us see how blessed of God we truly are, and there by hopefully convincing us that we have the best thing to offer other people. Not new houses, cars, clothes, or electronic gadgets, but that we have the secret of eternal life, all wrapped up in the good news of Jesus Christ our redeemer. So therefore go and make disciples of nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit amen. Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
I always finish my post by telling you that YOU ARE LOVED, well I want you to know it is not original to me, James MacDonald does it, that is where I got it from. None the less though it is a reminder, that God loves you, no matter who you are or what you’ve done He loves you!!! Have a great day and remember YOU ARE LOVED!!!

Forgiven, not by anything I have done, thank you Jesus, but only because of what Jesus has done for me.
