It is by our actions that we all can preach the Word best. It is also by our actions that we fail in preaching the Word. Gandhi was purported to have said that he would become a Christian, if he ever met one. If we truly have Jesus we cannot be silent; because to love Jesus is to share with others the Good News about Jesus.
One of Jesus’ last commands before His Ascension was to make disciples of all nations. If we do not preach, people cannot know. It is not, however, for us to know the results of our sowing. God works on His time table. For some people the seed needs to be nurtured more than for others. So, some of us may also be called to be nurturers of the seed. Others may have the joy of seeing the seed take root, grow and blossom in the person who turns to Jesus and brings Him into His heart. We should also not neglect the seed in our own hearts. That seed which grows by the grace of God also needs to be nurtured through the Word, so that we may grow strong and blossom.
Seeds - so that the world may be full of flowers for Jesus.
