The Seeds of Eternal Life
| Bro Samuel Wanga (Nakuru, Kenya)
n Kenya we have a higher education institu-
tion by the name of Egerton University, for-
merly Egerton College. A colonialist by the
name Lord Egerton of Tatton donated a portion
of his land, then the agricultural college was
built. At the moment the University publishes
a few pages in one of the local newspapers by
the name “Nation Daily”. Their articles talk of
the “Seeds of Gold”. They talk of a big variety
of seeds, animals, agriculture and related top-
ics of the agribusiness. It really helps farmers,
students and the public in general.
The real seeds of eternal life
The Holy Bible, which was written by over 40
prophets of the Almighty God, is the only
source of eternal life. It has the seeds that
lead to eternal life, which is very expensive
and difficult to acquire (Mark 4:1-20).
Jesus Christ the son of the living God spread
the gospel (planted the seeds of eternal life)
to mankind, so that we might be saved and
have a share in the promised Kingdom (John
3:16). Gold cannot be compared to eternal life
since gold will either vanish or the proprietor
will have to die in the long run.
The Bible also teaches us to be generous and
to welcome whoever knocks on our door, be-
cause we might even welcome angels to our
homes (Acts 17:25; Heb. 12:9; Eze. 18:20;
John 3:5). God is love, that’s why he extended
an olive branch to mankind after the fall of
Adam in the garden of Eden (Gen. 3:1-23).
People with wisdom choose life
The omniscient God urges us to choose life
rather than any other thing. Human life is very
dear. One can use his or her last penny seeking
for treatment to save their lives. Like in
Kenya, the ‘well off’ travel as far as South
Africa, India, U.S.A., U.K., Germany and many
other places just to get well and live longer.
But the God of Abraham is giving us eternal
life at a very cheap price, the most expensive
part of it was paid by His only begotten son,
Jesus of Nazareth, on Calvary (2 Cor. 5:1-2; 2
Tim. 4:18). Some die while undergoing treat-
ment, while some recover but still remain
mortal and die eventually through a different
The Bible reveals the great human
problem and it’s solution
It’s true that man’s life on earth comes from
God (Acts 17:25, Heb. 12:9). Children are a
gift from God (Psalms 127:6). In summary let’s
hear the gospel, spread it and put it into use.
We should practice it, as the saying goes,
“Salvation is not the destination it’s a jour-
Let those who would
enjoy a good future
waste none of their present
