A few additional observations. Jesus taught these parables to people who were still outside,(v.11) and before the cross and Holy Spirit outpouring. Later, Paul says, we are translated into the kingdom, and coworkers with God.(Col.1:24)Although we cannot duplicate, or even understand the mystery of life and growth, Christians may be called to work with the word by prayer and faith in the name (as agents)of Jesus. This supernatural function in the spirit world is quite apart from our well-meant carnal systems of management. Our worldly programs and organizations (of church building) do not, in themselves have the spiritual life that only the word of God has. Lets be careful to plant, water, and harvest only His seed. The good seed of the gospel also prepares the soil, can stop Satan from stealing, and hinders carnal riches and cares from choking out the living seed. Jesus is that life-giving Spirit.(1 Cor. 15:45
