The stories of seed planting continue to roll in. One thing that I notice, there is great joy in sowing seeds of the gospel because we know the good news has the power to change lives. The smallest of seeds has the power to have the most amazing results. It reminds me of the example Jesus gave in Matthew 13.
31 Here is another illustration Jesus used: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. 32 It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.”
Matthew 13:31-32 (NLT)
We could never know the potential of the seeds we plant. That person you talk to about Jesus or invite to Alpha later this year may very well be that person in the illustration Jesus gave. I want to encourage you to keep praying for opportunities (like Paul did), keep looking for those opportunities, and keep taking them.
On Sunday I talked about being a church that is focused on multiplication and not addition. Multiplication comes form disciples who make disciples – who make disciples. That’s the great commission!
