Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Two seed parables show that the power of God is in the word, and such immense power it is! It is not only unseen and hidden, it is also seen in the history of Israel: for generations the seed planted by the prophets lay dormant and dimly understood even by the prophets themselves. But in the fullness of time came the watering of the seed, as Christ came with Holy Baptism. And thus he himself revealed the full counsel of God, and was himself raised from the dead on the third day. Not only so, that is, not only the blade, but then the ear and the full corn in the ear: for we are his harvest, who have been baptized into him. For in us, through our ears, was planted this seed, and rises up to everlasting salvation. Sermon for Midweek of Sexagesima.
