ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER

February 25

The parable of the sower would have encouraged the disciples and it should also encourage us.  From the preaching of Jesus and His disciples and even down to our day the teaching and preaching of the word will bear fruit in time. God is the one that sees to that through the Holy Spirit.  Many times we get frustrated when we don’t see others grow or come to Christ immediately but just as it takes time for the seed to germinate and grow, so it takes time for the word of God to germinate and grow in people’s heart. Our job is just to scatter the seed (share the word of God) with others. Don’t be discouraged, God’s word will not return void Isaiah 55:10-11 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Mark 4:26-29 And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, 27 “and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. 28 “For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. 29 “But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
