Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Hebrews 10:11-18 &Mark 4:1-20
A cultivator is an implement that digs down deep into the soil to turn it up, exposing it to sunlight and loosening the dirt so that fresh air and moisture can more easily reach the roots of a crop. Left untended, my life can become hardened so that the rains of God’s mercy, and the breath of the Holy Spirit cannot penetrate. When I allow Christ, at once the Gardener and the True Vine, to work and grow up around and through me, the soil of my being is loosened, letting in the faithful love, life and grace of the Spirit of God. Then the words of scripture that have been sprinkled in and through my being my whole lifelong will be able to grow and bear abundant fruit. Christ Jesus, cultivate my being to become good soil for your word.
I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds. (Hebrews 10:16)
