INTRODUCTION: Farmers possess a skill set that I appreciate, but I don’t possess. A farmer knows how to plant seeds and then nourish it into a bountiful harvest.

The Power of the Gospel, a Spiritual light expels the darkness and reveals men's hearts. When the light of God comes in nothing is hidden. Everything will be revealed. If you embrace Jesus message more will be added to you! We must Sow seed as a farmer does, the Holy Spirit is in charge of the growth, and eventually there will be a Harvest. The Mustard seed is a reflection of small beginnings , but something that gradually has remarkable growth. it wraps up with Jesus privately explaing everything to His Disciples. Clearly to me Jesus was teaching the crowd to share about their encounter with God, spreading the word of God, proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior , and encouraging them that what they were apart of was bigger then anything they could imagine.

Marks of Vitality
Jesus sees the great need for leaders to share the good news with those who long for it and empowers disciples to go out and change lives in his name. This is not simply the role of the Good Shepherd or elders or pastors, to lead this coming of the Kingdom. As a vital church, we are called to empower servant leaders to go out and proclaim the good news, giving each other the tools necessary to change lives in Jesus' name as well.
I want to begin today by asking you a simple question. Why are We on Planet Earth? Jesus gave us two foundational mandates to this question. They are both found in the book of Matthew. The first one is found in chapter 22 and the second one is found in chapter 28. I will read both of them to you and…
