QT Matthew 13:31-43

February 6, 2016

God reminded me, through my spiritual twin sister Dajungle reminded me that today marks the day we’re 5 years new in Jesus. She was feeling particularly thankful, and I too am very thankful now, though sadly I had forgot about today. I don’t think I forget about my physical birthday, so I don’t know why I forgot about my spiritual birthday, when it’s actually even more significant. I suppose it might be because not a lot of people celebrate their spiritual birthdays. I wonder why.

In today’s QT, the thing that catches my eyes the most is when Jesus says in verse 39: “… The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.” I don’t know why but I thought people are kind of harvesting also, but this verse is saying that we’re just seeds, and maybe the seed will grow into a big tree and flow out love from God. But then Jesus says in earlier verses, in Matthew 9:37, that “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” I thought that meant that there needs to be more workers, but perhaps He’s just saying laying out the facts and the hardship He is against. Jesus also says in 28:19-20 to “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” which is kind of saving souls from death. Perhaps this is different from the harvesting on the last day. This harvesting is perhaps more about separating the good from the bad inside church.

I was a mustard seed. And after 5 years, I am now like a little sprout. God did this, and HE keeps growing me. God is with me. What more could I want?
