”Then another servant came and said, ‘Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You take out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow’"Luke 19:20-21
This week’s Church Planting Movement principle is: Sow the Gospel Abundantly. In 2 Corinthians 9:6, it says: “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” As we go out to plant churches among the nations of the world, we are called to sow generously and as we have been given freely the gospel ourselves, so we freely give it to those to whom we are sent. Ask God to give you new insight into how to sow generously in every area where you are sent and in every way you can. Ask God for new strategies to give of all He has given you to those you meet along the roads of your life. Pray that all disciples abundantly share the Good News in their homes, workplaces, and communities. Ask the Lord of the harvest to raise up disciples who willingly go into new areas to bring the gospel.
Ask God this week to give everyone involved in church planting movements a sense of their connectedness to the family of Christ as children of God. Practice listening to Holy Spirit daily for where He is sending you to prepare His way.
