How good is our soil? Are we receptive to the seeds God wants to sow into our faith? When we are good soil, we hear the word of God and understand it. As God’s roots take ahold of us, He becomes a part of all aspects of our lives. We in turn come to bear fruit not only with our words but also with our actions and deeds.
As we seek to be sowers, we must be humble and submit to the yoke of Jesus Christ. As we seek to build the kingdom we must acknowledge the fact that all we can do is sow. We are utterly dependent upon God to make the seeds grow and for new life to spring forth.
When we accept God’s call upon our lives, we take up that yoke 24/7 by connecting to God through prayer, study, worship… to nurture our faith, to better understand the Word, and to better equip ourselves to be sowers of seeds of faith. We have to first be good soil to sow into other’s lives. Work your soil!
