The Sower Sows

parable of the sower and the seed

 

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God” (Luke 8:11). Most believers are familiar with the parable of the sower. The sower sows seeds on different grounds and gets varying results. The seed, Jesus said, is the word of God. Now Jesus didn’t command us to go out and sow seed. He just says the sower sows the Word of God. I can hear the preacher pounding the pulpit and demanding we get out there and sow the seed. Actually he more than likely says go out there and invite people to our church. Jesus just says the sower sows the word of God. That does raise the question, however, are you a sower? It doesn’t mean are you out on the corner preaching the Word. It means are you planting seeds of the good news. That may simply being someone who glorifies God with their smile. It may mean greeting someone in the mall. How did Jesus sow? He just walked around and people were drawn to Him. Just point people to Jesus in whatever way you can. A sower just sows on whatever ground is around them.
