God's Stimulus Plan
Sunday, February 8, 2009
The good news is that our country is talking about how to get things moving in the right direction.
There is a bigger need than that, and that is the need for Spiritual Stimulus Plan to get our country thinking about the Creator of it all, returning our gaze to Almighty God, who owns it all! – and we have a God-guaranteed way to accomplish that.
God’s growth model has been forgotten and neglected- He uses His Word as a seed, to change lives forever.
“For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring Word of God” 1Peter 1:23
“This is the meaning of the parable (The Parable of the sower), the seed is the Word of God.” Luke 8:11
We need to renew our efforts to sow the Word of God. That is what God uses (along with the Holy Spirit) to stimulate hearts to turn toward Him. It is God’s Stimulus Plan.
We need to BECOME Sowers of the Word.
We need to RECRUIT Sowers of the Word
We need to EQUIP and PRAY FOR Sowers of the Word
Unlike the economic stimulus plans, God’s plan is guaranteed to stimulate hearts!:
So is my Word that goes out from my mouth, it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire, and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
You are an important part of God’s Stimulus Plan. Here are four things you can do- right now!
1. Start carrying Gospels in your pockets, and ask God who to give them to.
2. Invite your friends and church to do the same thing.
3. If you can, sponsor other members, and invest in this ministry.
4. Pray that other members will be bold, fruitful, and faithful.
The time is right! Hearts are ready. People are searching. We have the only answer.
“Being poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.” 2Corinthians 6:10
Together, we can turn hurting and lost people back to God…one seed at a time.
