Plant a Seed

After last week’s The Chain of Evangelism I heard from a friend who had always thought about telling others about Jesus Christ, regardless of the response, as planting a seed.

Yes! We are responsible to plant seeds that, God willing, will lead to redemption.

I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. (1 Corinthians 3:6–8)

And Yes! We are responsible to exercise the gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit.

Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly… (Romans 12:6)

And Yes! God is sovereignly responsible for the result.

Let’s be faithful in planting seeds, and rejoice in what God does.

Press on!
