Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” 37 He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, 42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
Rarely do the disciples seem at ease - Jesus asks them
51 “Have you understood all these things?” They said to him, “Yes.” 52 And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”
It is rare to rest in one place. If we could all be in His perfection, we would stay there. And drink deeply - the elixir of salvation and redemption. If only this brew were readily available for our asking. Except He tells us in His Word, He is this available.
Even St. Paul and Peter wrote of feeling unworthy of God. David asked God to be forgiven his hidden sins as well as the apparent ones. Paul wrote he knew he sinned, even without the conscious knowledge he did, with those cracks and crevices in our personalities we are not always readily aware of.
As the good seed, we try as our seasons change. And take time to adjust to the seasons of life changing. Fight the good fight. Finish the race. Well done good and faithful servant. Looking forward in trust, to Him. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
