Even as sons of the Kingdom, we all start as seeds of the Son of Man. The good news of the Kingdom begins as a seed planted within you that has the potential to grow you in His perfect life into the Image and Likeness of God. It is a seed of limitless potential, full of the grace and power of the Lord Almighty and yet incased within the dying shell which is your physical body.
The Seed is a process designed to nurture this seed of His Kingdom within you and bring out the eternal in your life. It is beyond the abilities of Man to turn a seed into a mighty fruit-bearing tree. Yet if one seeks this blessing from the Lord and follows certain steps, this mystery of life comes to fruit. This principle is at work during your activation within The Seed.
We have designed activation exercises for you to get crystal clear on the things that God has shown you throughout your life that He is calling you to. We help you organize those into a coherent vision for your future. God constantly reveals more and more of our calling to us as we live this life and so this will not be the last time that you ever focus on your calling.
We often find that people have a scattered idea with little to no coherence of understanding in the life that the Lord is leading them to.
Others have a very strong sense of where God is calling them and who He is calling them to be, but might not have taken the time to refine that vision so that it can be used as the starting point of every future financial decision. No matter where you stand on your current understanding of your calling, this process allows your advisor to come right alongside you to ensure that God’s calling in your life is always the driving motivation for every conversation and decision.
This process will help you better understand the answers to questions such as:
- What is the life that God has called you to? Are you living it?
- Do you feel like there’s more to this life than what you are experiencing so far?
- Are there deep desires within your heart that seem to be going unfulfilled?
- What are your gifts, values, & passions and how do those contribute to your calling?
- How is God weaving the unique strands of your life with that of your spouse into one amazing family calling?
The truest definition of every person’s calling is to mature towards the likeness of God as seen in Christ. Jesus only did what He saw the Father doing. This is the true calling that everyone in Christ is called to, but it is also the invitation that most will never accept. The primary purpose of The Seed is to give you awareness of this calling and to help you understand how the uniqueness of your very life fits into this Godly vision of your life and point you in the direction for achieving true abundant life.
