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

Saturday, March 5, 2016

"Other people are like the seed planted on the good ground. They hear the teaching and accept it. Then they grow and make fruit—sometimes 30 times more, sometimes 60 times more, and sometimes 100 times more."
— Mark 4:20 NLT
Illustration of Mark 4:20 NLT — "Other people are like the seed planted on the good ground."

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, 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.
