Plant

The 4th Verb Of Discipleship

My beloved had a vineyard
on a rich and fertile hill.
He protected the land,
removed its stones,
and PLANTED it with the best vines.
In the middle of the vineyard
he built a watchtower
and carved a winepress
in the nearby rocks.
Then he waited
for a harvest of sweet grapes.
Isaiah 5:1-2

 

PLANTING The Best Vines:
What’s That Mean?

When you’re building a vineyard,
you don’t want to plant mediocre vines,
you want to plant the best vines.
The best vines come
from the best seed.
The best seed we can ever plant
in our hearts is the living
and active word of God.
