Follow Jesus...Let Him Do the Work!
Matthew 13:8-9 New International Version (NIV)
8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.” 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Saturday - June 27 - Read Matthew 13:8-9, 23 There is one more important point from the same verses we look at yesterday. Do not judge yourself based on how much spiritual crop you think you are or are not producing. Jesus isn’t! Just trust in Jesus. You never know how God is or will produce a crop yield through you. When I was 12 my dad took a call as a pastor at a new church. There was a big going away party for my dad and my family, but mostly for my dad. But my Sunday School teacher and my Sunday School class threw a going away party just for me. She got me a farewell card, which I still have tucked away somewhere. When you follow Jesus you do not know how or how much he is going to “produce” a yield in and through you. Follow him. Let him do the work!
