Song of Solomon 8:6-8 “Love is Fire, and jealousy endures to the grave. That no water can quench, and no river can drowned out. If a man were to give all he has for love it would be utterly despised.”

When looking at the parable of the sower in Mathew 13 you find some interesting things going on. We have things in us still that the world and the church put on you that were never intended to be there.

 MATHEW 13: 24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

The weeds are the things that were never supposed to be there. This however does not delay the Lord in implanting his life inside of us (seed). As we grow in him the weeds (sins, addictions, etc..) these things have to manifest eventually. If we are to go on with the Lord we have to allow him to deal with these things for a period of time which is never comfortable.

We cannot hide our issues they have to rip the soil of our hearts, and grow into a weed. However, the Lord separates the weeds from the wheat (his life) to be burned never to return again. This relates to the vine that doesn’t produce fruit he prunes.

This cannot be accomplished however by our own efforts. Hints Song of Solomon 8:8 If a man were to give all he has for love it would be utterly despised. We cannot deal with the weeds ourselves. Not by our strength, religion, or self-righteousness. This work can only be done by the Lord’s life inside of us.

So rest assured as we let go and abide in the vine HE will prune all those branches that don’t bear fruit. HE will take away those deep dark things we think are impossible to be delivered from. He will have a bride spotless, so that only his life remains.

For his love is a fire, and his jealousy endures to the grave.
