1 Peter 1:23 For through the living and eternal Word of God you have been born again. And this "seed" that is planted within you can never be destroyed but will live and grow inside you forever...Where I live in Bozeman, Montana there is the Museum of The Rockies. Part of the museum is a beautiful restored home that dates back over 100 yrs. They also have a garden that has seeds from that era as well. They are continually propagating and protecting these seeds so they can keep their historical value. You and I have an "eternal seed" within us that cannot be destroyed by weather, insects or blight. This "seed" will grow and flourish as we continually feed it by reading, speaking and believing the Word of God.
