Sowing The Kingdom

Welcome to the Discipleship Minute. I’m Maurice Smith. In John Chapter 4 Jesus took a journey of necessity through Samaria to demonstrate a spiritual principle He would later teach. Faith grows where the Kingdom is sown. If you sow the seed of the Kingdom, you’ll reap the fruit of the Kingdom. By the time the disciples heard Jesus teach the parable of the sower in Matthew 13, they had watched Him practice this principle of “Kingdom seed sowing” for at least a full year. Some discipleship lessons must be demonstrated before they can be taught. Sowing seed wasn’t a “lesson” for Jesus, it was how He “did ministry.” And it’s how He expects us to do ministry, too. Learn more about sowing seed in our book, And They Dreamt Of A Kingdom: Biblical Studies In Discipleship And The Kingdom of God. You’ll find it on our website at risingrivermedia.org; that’s risingrivermedia.org.(From And They Dreamt Of A Kingdom, Volume 1, page 76)
