“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever” 1 Peter 1:23.
According to 1 Peter 1:23, we have been born again by the incorruptible seed of the Word of God. The seed of God’s Word is imperishable, eternal, and does not decay. That means it will not fade away, weaken, or become obsolete. Mark 24:35 says, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my Words shall not pass away.”
When we are born again, we become a part of God’s garden in which His imperishable seed, His Word, is to grow. God is the husbandman and He gives us the seed. But we work in cooperation with Him to plant and cultivate that seed in the hearts and lives of ourselves and others. 1 Corinthians 3:9 says, “For we are laborers together with God: you are God’s husbandry, you are God’s building.”
God’s Word will bring forth fruit anytime it is planted in a believer’s heart. But if that believer doesn’t plant and water the seed, it won’t produce a harvest.
The seed of God’s Word contains all the exceedingly great and precious promises God has given to us. If we neglect to cultivate the Word of God by believing and standing on God’s promises, we will hinder their fulfillment in our lives. When God’s Word becomes precious seed to you, and you cultivate and water it by reading and meditating on it and applying it to your life, then you will reap a bountiful harvest of His blessings and promises.
