For the last four weeks I have been sharing the Universal Truths Of Sowing And Reaping.
My story takes place in Africa. And it really isn’t MY story but one told by Beth Moore, a gifted bible teacher and speaker. I heard this story years ago and it had such an effect on me that I have never forgotten it and the meaning behind it!
The story goes…
The messages of Truth that God sends our way is for us to grow and become more like Jesus. BUT, it is also for us to share. To plant in the lives of those around us so they can be fed on Truth too.
Unlike those dear hungry souls in the African village, God has a constant source of holy seed for us. He lavishes us with good that will continually satisfy us and produce a huge harvest!
For we are God’s (own) workmanship (handiwork). Recreated in Christ Jesus (born anew) that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us (taking paths which he prepared ahead of time), that we should walk in them (living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live).
So today, as God lavishes your life with good and has good work that will produce a harvest…
DON’T EAT YOUR SEED!
Broadcast it into the world.
God has predestined you to be a sower of his WORD… a missionary to your family, friends, neighbors and community… and even the world. Plant God’s message of love, forgiveness and salvation into the ready lives of others that God has already prepared for you!
Be patient… water the seed you plant with prayer… and be ready for a harvest!
