[The Glory Unveiled]
For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. ( 1 Peter 1:23 )
Seeds are the resources that make fruits and plants. Without a viable seed, a fruit is not assured. The apostle Peter writes that we should have sincere love for each other now that we have obeyed the word of God and have been purified (1 Peter 1:22). In 1 Corinthians 13:13, we read that of love, faith and hope, love endures. So the apostle Peter is reaffirming that, the seed of love which endures forever is what we are born of. He calls the enduring seed of love, “imperishable seed”. The seed that resulted in us, was love. For God so loved us and gave His son to us. This son is love because God is love. And because we came out of the design of love, we also have the imperishable seed of love. This is why the apostle in verse 22, says we should love. We have the seed of love in us. A fruit carries its seed and every seed carries in it other seeds. So whatever brought us into existence, namely, love, is within us too, as seed. We can love anyone because we carry in our spiritual DNA the life of love. This love was activated through the living and enduring word of God. So, our ability to continue in this life of love depends on our continuous dependence on the word of God. The word of God is our lifeline to our life source.
Prayer_Bead: Our Father, Lover of our souls, we walk this day and everyday in the consciousness of your love for us and the seed of that love in us. Help us to be with your word at all times. In Jesus name.
