The Seed of God's Word
Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
1 John 1:1
1 Peter 1:23
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. "Seed" is used in the Bible to represent LIFE. When a farmer plants a seed it has life in it and it grows and develops into a living plant. God's Word is likened to seed because God's Word has life in it and it produces life. When a man or woman confesses with their mouth the Lord Jesus and believes in their heart that God raised him from the dead (God's Word regarding salvation - Romans 10:9), that person receives eternal life from God. That person is born again of incorruptible seed by the Word of God which liveth and abideth for ever and produces eternal life. . . . thy word hath quickened me (given me life) - Psalm 119:50
