God promised that His Word would not return to him “void.” That same Word is “quick” (alive) “and powerful” (Heb. 4.12). The Word of God is seed (Luke 8.11) that must be sown in the soil of human hearts (Matt. 13.18-23). As the apostle Paul planted and Apollos watered, so must we. To be sure, if we tell others the Good News and water (continue to teach and nurture those who receive the message with good hearts), God will give the increase (I Cor. 3.6). Brethren, every opportunity that presents itself, share the story of Jesus and invite a friend, co-worker, or someone you’ve just met to come and visit with us. Invite people into your homes, for a meal or just coffee and desert and then invite them to come to Bible class. Some of the best personal workers I have known have been teenagers who just kept bringing their friends with them to church services. Be relentless in planting and then watch God grow the church.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1.16
