Seed of the Serpent vs. Seed of the Woman

We know the saying, “You reap what you sow.” We also know the story of how the serpent tricked Adam and Eve and sin entered the world. As children of God we have the opportunity to continuously sow the seed of the Lord and not the seed of Sin. Seeds are the basis of growth for all plants; without any seed there will not be any plants. When we look at ourselves today, do we see unrighteousness or righteousness? The answer to that question starts all the way down from our roots, and these roots start by the seeds we’ve sowed in our spiritual life.


Unrighteousness means to not be in right standing with God. In other words it means living in sin, but how did sin get here and how is it still affecting us today? In Genesis 3:1 it says, “Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” Even after God commanded His prized creation to not eat the fruit they still did it and knew what they were doing. This is how sin entered through the world: disobedience. When we plant seeds of disobedience in our lives, everything will come crashing down. This is the seed the serpent wants us to sow. He loves when God’s people disobey Him. He knows there is a path of destruction afterwards. Allowing consistent disobedience and disrespect to the Lord our God just gives the enemy more incentive to play with our lives. Disobedience towards the Lord is the seed of the serpent, and it’s something that will continuously pull us away from God.


What about the seed of God? The Seed of God is found in His son, Jesus. In John 15:5 Jesus says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” It all starts with Jesus. He is the person we should model ourselves after. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior, God then sows His seed inside of us. The seed is the first step in plant growth. In our spiritual life, accepting Christ is the first step in spiritual growth. It doesn’t stop there though. In Colossians 2:6-7, Paul instructs us to “walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith”. The plant doesn’t stop at the seed but its journey keeps going. Jesus is our foundation, He is our seed we can always turn to in order to keep growing in the light of God. By doing this our faith grows consistent and we leave no room for the Seed of the Serpent to be sowed in our lives.
