OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s verse

Here is another illustration of what the Kingdom of God is like: A farmer planted seeds in a field, and then he went on with his other activities. As the days went by, the seeds sprouted and grew without the farmer’s help, because the earth produces crops on its own. Mark 4:26-28

Today’s reading
Mark 4


The parable of the farmer scattering seed is one of the best-known of Jesus’ teaching parables. Jesus told parables for two reasons: (1) to help us understand the heart of God; and (2) to help us understand how things work in the Kingdom of God. In this parable, he is describing the true meaning of our life: to cultivate a heart that is receptive to hearing and accepting the redemptive message of Jesus’ death and resurrection, then to live a life that produces a huge harvest that can “feed” a multitude. Our lives are intended to be a source of life-giving “nutrition” for everyone around us, and the only way we can produce that kind of fruit is to provide good soil for the “seeds” God wants to plant in us. The meaning of our life, according to Jesus, is to do whatever it takes to continually offer him “fertile soil”—to give ourselves to understanding him and his kingdom, to continuously deepen our soul by pursuing the truth about ourselves and about God, and to set aside our worries and our material ambitions so that we trust God above all.

Knowing Your Limitations

Devotional of the Day from Jesus Centered Bible App

God’s people must recognize what they are called to do—and do it. Then they must depend upon God to do what only he can do. And he will.

Today’s prayer
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. Knowing my limitations and trusting in what only You can do is key to my OneWalk with You. I must put on the full armor You provide me and stay focused on You. Praying without ceasing for me and mine, as well as those You place in my path. Help me Jesus be ready, willing and able to respond to the needs of others. Dying to myself. These things I ask in Jesus name. Amen
