John 15: (4) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. (5) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (KJV).
Well folks as you might guess, the watermelon and cantaloupe season is about gone for this year. I bought one of the best cantaloupes ever this year a few weeks ago. It was called an Arbyrd Missouri cantaloupe. Oh it was so sweet, and ripe. It was one of the biggest and best I have seen and tasted in a long time. It was so good that I washed the seeds and dried them because I want to try and grow them next year in the garden.
As I was putting the seeds away the Lord spoke to my heart with this thought. I could have experienced that cantaloupe and kept it to myself and threw away the seed, but since it was so good I decided to produce more and share with others.
As a Christian, we have the most wonderful hope through the grace of God and that is a loving Savior Jesus Christ. He gave us the great commission in Matthew 28:19-20.
(19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (KJV)
He tells us to teach and bring forth good fruit in our Christian lives.
He is the sweetest and best, and instead of experiencing him and keeping him to ourselves why not plant the seed so that others can experience him as well. Christians share the word of God with the lost, plant the word of the truth of the gospel; because it will bring forth fruit.
God bless you.
