Theme: The seed of God.
Text: “…for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” 1 John 3:9
Key Points / Expectations:
The expected fruit from the seed of God.
In the month of July our study was on how to walk in the victory offered by the cross of Jesus Christ. However, in this lesson (August 2020) we shall be looking at the kind of fruit that the seed of God is expected to produce. The emphasis will be on:
The principle of fruiting as the seed of God:
Generally, a seed is the origin and a carrier of a kind of life. It has the ability to produce fruit and also to multiply itself. Gen. 8:22, John 6:63 (Gen. 1:29, 2 Peter 1:4). Therefore, the principle is that when a seed is sown, it grows into maturity and bear fruits after its kind. Matt. 13:31-32, Gen. 1: 11-12.
This principle is universal and is also applicable to the seed of God. Mark 4:14-20, Rom. 7:1-7. Note, that except the seed follows this process and bear fruits of its nature, it cannot fulfill purpose and will be discarded. Luke 13:6-9, John 12:24 (2 Peter 1:8-11).
The kind of fruit expected from the seed of God:
The fruit expected from the seed of God should be of the same nature (glory) of God. In other words, the fruit of the seed of God is expected to be in every material nature as God. The fruit should carry and show the same potency, glory, grace, etc. as that of God (1 Peter 1:23-25, John 1:12-16, Gal. 5:22-23) and our lives should evidently display the same glory for the world to witness it. 1 John 3:8-20, John 15:1-20, 1 Peter 2:9 (Examples: Mark 3:13-15, Acts 4:13-14 / Luke 10:40-42, John 11:20-41, John 12:1-8).
If the fruit is not showing, we don’t have it and if is adulterated is also useless. Matt. 5:13.
The question is “Are we living this life”? Let’s examine ourselves since after the last convention, any impart as the seed of God?
