The Seed You Sow

Mark 4 :26 He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. 27 Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. 28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.

The great commission calls for us to make disciples as we go about the world. We sow the seed is far more ways that we might realise. It is not just in formal “preaching,” but by our professions of faith, and our examples of that faith we show in practice. We often don’t think about that last bit, but it is as much a part of planting the gospel as the things we say. In fact, many in the world are far more likely to give our testimony’s credence based on our actions than our words.

It is up to us to sow the seed, but we need to remember that it is not us that makes that seed grow. It is easy to get frustrated that people are not responding in the way we think they should. But making things grow is not our mission. Ours is to sow, it is God that makes it grow. The harvest is His.
