Are you scattering seeds as you shine for Him?
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (2 Corinthians 4:3-4 KJV)
God desires that His own spiritual family purposely shine the light of His Word for others to see and desire for their own lives. Any man who has been quickened alive and received into God’s spiritual family share the desires of God as they walk in fellowship with Him, witnessing and sowing seeds of the gospel message to those around them.
Men who exist outside spiritual fellowship with God, after a time of ignorance and willful turning from the things of God, are veiled or have their understanding of the spiritual things of God shuttered in their life because of their insistence in living in alignment with the god of this world rather than the God of Heaven. Man can only choose to turn away from the things of God for a time before God boards up his darkened heart and ear gate leaving him to align up with the message of hopelessness from the god of this world.
There is always somebody God has placed upon our pathway that is eager to hear His Word. God said in the Bible His Word never returns void having a specific time and purpose for His Word to be sown to others we encounter in this world. Often it is the man of God who falls short and fails to shine as a beacon to others who cross our pathway that are desperate, starving spiritually, and existing hopelessly lost and eager to receive God’s message of eternal hope.
Are you hiding God’s Word from others nearby who desperately need to hear His gospel message or shining brightly for God?
