Mark 4:8 (International Standard Version)
But others fell on good soil and produced a crop. They grew up, increased in size, and produced 30, 60, and 100 times what was sown.
In my life I have found that in every group you will find that only a few people do all the work! I found this out the hard way when my babies were growing up. I first encountered this in the elementary PTO. Then it continued all the way to the High School Band Boosters and oddly enough all the way to the college level of the UNA Pride of Dixie Marching Band!!!
To me....Church seems to be no different. My Church has a fabulous group of core people that are totally sold out to Jesus and run God's Holy Church like a fine tuned sports car! They pitch in wherever needed, no matter what, they are there to pick up the slack, they stand, they intercede, they are the ones God has trusted to get the job done!!!
Not long ago I waltzed up to my Church to do my long list of things before Sunday Service. I noticed the plants in front of the Church building needed watering. I wondered...who's job is this? I wanted to walk right past them. I wanted to fly right into Church and get my job done and fly right back home! I thought... the person who's job this really is will get them watered before Sunday morning, I'm sure! The Holy Spirit tugged at my heart and I'm glad to say I listened and have watered the plants ever since.
Every unsaved soul that The Lord has placed in a Christians path either needs the seed of salvation sown or needs the seed that someone else before you has planted to be watered. It is crystal clear that Jesus is coming soon. All you have to do is watch the news to figure that out! Life is short and we are so blessed to be living in these last days! Live by the example of Christ and spread the gospel of HIS GOOD NEWS!!! Don't walk over the Holy Spirit's guidance and think that the next person will do the job that The Lord intended for you to do!!! WATER THOSE SEEDS!!! WATCH THOSE PLANTS GROW :)))
Many blessings to you always ~
