Multiplication is Built In by God

God has designed each product of the harvest as a package of seeds to produce more. One of my favorite stress relief projects is keeping a small veggie garden in the backyard. Did well this year, but we’ve reached the point of looking toward next year. No need to buy seeds or plants again. All we had to do was cut one open. God has packaged them into the harvest. As Bob Logan said, “In every apple is an orchard.”

The same is true for us as Christ followers and churches. We have within us all that’s needed to produce more disciples, leaders, and churches. And that’s His desire for each and every one of us.

Genesis 1:28 (ESV) And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth…

John 15:5 (ESV) I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

2 Timothy 2:2 (ESV) and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

Are you planting seeds in the lives of others and within your sphere of influence?
