James 1: thoughts… part 3

Read James 1

The firstfruits of my sunflower crop…

The only seeds to mature in an attempt to plant a cutting garden… many seeds planted… only a few grew to produce…
In James… a verse to memorize has stuck… gives insight…
By His own choice, He gave us a new birth
by the message of truth so that
we would be the firstfruits of His creatures.
James 1:18
HCSB
(emphasis mine)
How many thousands of years did He wait… for the firstfruits from His planting in the Garden
Amazing to think… we… Believers in the Son… are firstfruits… His crop…
So many seeds planted… so many failed… but now is the time of harvest…
firstfruits… from a Garden planting… God the Gardener… the One who makes things grow… the One who knows the patience of waiting… for the firstfruits from the Son…
Do you bear the glory of firstfruits…?
Do you see the joy you bring the Father…?
Be glorious… for you are the result of a long awaited crop…
