Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.
-Jesus taught the parable of the wheat & tares to demonstrate how the deceiver works against those who believe in His gospel. Just as wheat & tares look exactly the same at maturity, deception is crafted from the truth to make us believe in a lie. May we hold fast the gospel of truth despite the various challenges so that we may inherit His kingdom.
-Obedience is vital in our Christian lives. Our way of thinking basically determines if we will obey or not & is linked to our destination in this life & the life to come. Carnal minds create enmity with God but Spiritual minds have life & peace. Therefore, we should focus on whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, praiseworthy & give a good report.
-Jesus instructed us to love our enemies, bless those who curse us, do good to those who hate us & pray for those who persecute us; for many people do the opposite & are never rewarded. This is gesture of true sonship as we emulate the Father.
-The enemy mostly attacks the mind. Thus battles in the mind that exalts themselves against the knowledge of God cause disobedience to God. By submitting to God & resisting the devil, he will flee from us. Lets put on the breastplate (protect our heart) of faith & love; and a helmet (shield our mind) of hope in salvation that Christ has bestored unto us in His mercy, love & grace.
-Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father & made us sit together with Him in the heavenly places through His mercy & grace. Therefore, we should not live in fear for in the end of time all evil will be brought to captivity by Christ in His power & might.
We thank You Father, for what You have done unto us through out our lives. We humbly ask You to purify our thoughts & hearts so that we may focus on what is pleasing to You. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness & help us in our weaknesses. All glory belong to You. Amen
