God’s Word is working in us to improve us and increase us (Col 1:29). His Word is in you. His Word is a seed. A seed does not exist just to be a little round thing snuggled up in the ground. A seed exists to sprout, to push up out of the ground, to grow a stalk and put out leaves and blooms so that it may produce fruit and that fruit is meant to be of benefit to others. God’s Word is a seed in us and it is growing in us (Lk 8:11). A seed cannot stay as it is, it must increase (Jn 12:24). There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace…(Isa 9:7). The seed in the parable of the sower is the Word of God (Lk 8:11) and because the Kingdom government of Jesus cannot stay the same but must increase, that seed of His Kingdom must increase in us. It must increase in each of us so that it can affect our families, our churches, our communities and our nation. That’s why the seed is growing in us.

Discerning the intent of a particular weapon can reveal a strategy for its defeat. An example is that many weapons seem personal when you are actually one of many being targeted. An individual can get overwhelmed by being caught in the crossfire of a bigger, corporate target. Like the Untouchables, who were governmental agents caught in the crossfire between the purpose of a nation and the corruption trying to undermine it, they took personal hits but the war was much bigger than the individuals. Their mandate or calling and purpose put them in the crossfire. In addition to persevering in spite of their personal hits, the strategic elements that made the Untouchables untouchable, or undefeated, were purity of motive, skill, and corporateness. (2Co.10:3-4)
Factor In The Holy Spirit
Superheroes seem to have become the theme of many movies in recent time. Some of the most effective, powerful superheroes in those stories have come from other planets, other parts of the universe. They are adored, lauded, even feared for their superpowers. One movie which came out a few months ago depicted a man from earth who ended up on another planet and became the hero who defeated the super bad guy on that planet. The message seems clear: that people need a hero and expect that he can only come from a far away place, from a totally different environment. Looking around at present world circumstances, I think almost everyone would agree that someone must come to us from a completely different realm of existence and pierce the impossibilities of our world which we all seem helpless to overcome. The chaos must be confronted with superior contradiction. It won’t be done without the enablement of the Holy Spirit. (Jn16:7; Acts1:8) (This is the first of a series about the Holy Spirit by Marty Gabler)
