First, Last, and Often

We were discussing simple training techniques, how to help people learn and grasp concepts, when the idea was brought up. If something is important you should touch on it first, last, and often throughout. It brought up a passage that I haven’t been able to shake lately.

“One who watches the wind will not sow,
and the one who looks at the clouds will not reap.
 Just as you don’t know the path of the wind,
or how bones develop in the womb of a pregnant woman,
so you don’t know the work of God who makes everything.
In the morning sow your seed,
and at evening do not let your hand rest,
because you don’t know which will succeed,
whether one or the other,
or if both of them will be equally good.”
Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 (full chapter here)

Sowing the Gospel seed is not something we should be picky about. It is the single most important message we will ever have and it deserves to be first, last, and often. As we take this word to heart, I can’t wait to see what God does in Martinsburg and throughout Berkeley County (and wherever you are). As I write this post I know of at least a few people walking the streets, sowing the seed, and asking God to produce a harvest. If scripture teaches me anything, it’s what a few people under the influence of the Holy Spirit can accomplish!

God wants to use us to make disciples of the nations, starting right outside your front doorstep. Join in on the movement and see what God will do. We would LOVE to share the journey with you. Check out the quick video introduction below to see the gospel tool we are using on missionary journeys. There is nothing holding you back from sowing the best seed ever – first, last, and often!
