Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 1 November 2019

The Same

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.
(Genesis 1:9-13)

Today’s Morsel:  When God created the heavens and the earth, everything that He created upon the earth was to reproduce after it’s kind.  Trees, flowers, fish, beasts, and humans were to reproduce after it’s kind.  Each possessed its own seed.  If you will notice, the fruit was in the seed and the seed was in the fruit.  It was to maintain their true identity and purity.  God is not the author of confusion.  Paul said, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.(Galatians 5:22-23).  Therefore, if we say that we are in Christ, then we should be reproducing after Him, not after the fruit of the world.  If we are truly born-again, we should have His seed in us.  Are you reproducing the same fruit as His spirit?

Sing: To be like Jesus, to be like Jesus, on earth I long to be like Him.  All through life’s journey, from earth to glory, I only ask to be like Him.

Thought For Today: The fruit is in the seed and the seed is in the fruit.
