And he said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how. The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.” (Mark 4:26-29 ESV)
Hymn ELH 228:1 Almighty God, Thy Word Is Cast
Almighty God, Thy Word is cast
Like seed into the ground;
Now let the dew of heav’n descend
And righteous fruits abound.
Let not the foe of Christ and man
This holy seed remove,
But give it root in ev’ry heart
To bring forth fruits of love.
Heavenly Father, let Your Word be scattered throughout the world. Bring many to faith and help them to grow into a strong and healthy Church where Your Word is preached in all its truth and purity. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
