Am I fertalizier?

October 26, 2008

While God wants us to be harvesters, know that not all people will be saved. Some people will continue to hear the word but ignore it and they will not produce the fruit in their lives. Look at this parable that Jesus teaches:

Luke 13:6-9 DRC
6 He spoke also this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it, and found none.
7 And he said to the dresser of the vineyard: Behold, for these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it done therefore: whycumbereth it the ground?
8 But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig about it, and dung it.
9 And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

God plants some people where they can hear the word. It is up to them to take the nourishment that He provides and follow Him. At one point, God will turn to the Holy Spirit and say, waste no more time on that person. The Holy Spirit will say, let me try one more time, I know from the people praying for him that he needs this salvation. If it does not work, they we will remove him from the garden.

You may know some people that are on the edge. God may have given up on them but prayers are still being made. So the Holy Spirit fertilizes him and tries to get the growth.

Will all grow. No, but a second chance is given. If you see someone near the edge and God prompts you to witness to them, do not be scared to do it. You may be the fertilizer that person needs.
