1 Peter 1:23 For through the eternal and living Word of God you have been born again. And this "seed" that He planted within you can never be destroyed but will live and grow inside of you forever. To look at a seed in the palm of your hand doesn't seem like there is any life to it. But, take that same seed, plant it in good soil, water it and give it the proper light and you will see that something miraculous happens. What seemed dead begins to grow. Jesus, through the New Birth, has planted an eternal, living seed on the inside of every child of God. In order for it to grow we water it with God's Word. Without a steady diet of the Word of God, that seed will lay dormant. Natural seeds need water to grow, so too does this spiritual seed. Water your seed with God's Word and watch it grow.
