What Jesus Did! 'Great Harvest!' — Mark 4:20

Thursday, March 5, 2020

[Concluding the explanation of his parable, Jesus said,] "And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God's word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!"
— Mark 4:20 NLT

Key Thought

Jesus wants us to be productive in our service to his kingdom. In fact, he is working in the lives of those who are fully yielded to him to bring about a great harvest. Like a small seed growing into a majestic plant or tree, the power of the Kingdom is multiplied through the lives of those fully yielded to Jesus!

Today's Prayer

O LORD God, help me yield myself completely to your will. May the things I do in my life bring you glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
