Mark 4:14-20

“The sower sows the word. And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: the ones who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy. And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”

Your mission is simply to be a faithful witness for God—you have no control of how people will respond to your witness!

Being a witness is like that man scattering seed. Some of the seed finds only hard, uninterested hearts. Some of the seed seems to be joyfully interacted with, but it’s only temporary interest. Some people recognise their need for God, but very soon that responsiveness is swallowed up by their worldly values.

But mixed in with all those disappointing responses are those whose hearts are so ready for God’s truth, ready to respond to him. You will never find those people if you aren’t willing to also encounter the others.

Go on the journey of learning to be a witness with the expectation that you will encounter all of these responses. When you encounter the ones who are ready, you know it is so worth the journey!


How does the image of “scattering seeds” encourage you?
