One seed

Today I want to talk about John 4:35; "say not ye, there are yet four months and then comes the harvest. Behold, I say unto you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

This is the story of Jesus talking to the Samaritan woman. Jesus' encounter with this was was life changing. He spent a significant amount of time talking to her about her personal life, answering her questions, and treating her with a level of respect and dignity she had rarely known. It was the first seed Jesus ever sowed into the heart of a Samaritan. The woman was so moved by His compassion that when she returned to her village, she told the people, "Come see a man, which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ?" John 4: 29.

Because of this seed sown, the whole town came out to see Jesus. They asked Him to stay with them and He stayed with them two days and many believed in Him. All because Jesus took the time to talk to one little woman, an outcast. No one is so bad that God doesn't want to reach them. You never know who that one person you talk to might be.

One Sunday school teacher changed the whole world because she sowed seeds into Billy Grahams life. What kind of a reward will she reap?  What about the person who talked to Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagen, or any number of great men of God? We never know who we are witnessing to. Our testimony is our seed and we need to touch people, to plant that seed.  We may not have the finances to go out on mission trips or to send to people who are all ready out there but a single would can touch the life of one person and change the whole world.

Do you share your testimony with others? Do you reach out to the undesirable? Can you make a difference?
