Have you ever witnessed to someone for some time and shared the gospel only to find that some time down the track this same person has committed themselves to the Lord? This has happened to me on occasion.
Sometimes we share the gospel with someone and we know that the Holy Spirit has been upon the situation, yet nothing else comes of it — or so we think.
This is post is for those who are busy sowing not to become disheartened when you don’t see the fruits of your labour straight away. Perhaps once we have planted the seed, we should pay for a reaper to come into the lives in which that seed is planted. I have never prayed that way before, but I think I am going to start!
For in this the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ “I have sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.” (John 4:37)
