Day 367: Prayer for the saints to realize that their sowing the gospel seed is to sow God’s word that conveys God’s life into people

Pray that the saints would realize that their sowing the gospel seed is their sowing of God’s word that conveys God’s life into people’s spirit for their regeneration (Mark 4:14, 20, 33; Acts 8:4; James 1:21 and note 211; 1 Pet. 1:23 and note 232).

Mark 4:14, 20, 33—The sower sows the word…And these are the ones sown on the good earth: those who hear the word and receive it and bear fruit, one thirtyfold, and one sixtyfold, and one a hundredfold…And in many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear.

Acts 8:4—Those therefore who were scattered went throughout the land announcing the word as the gospel.

James 1:21—Therefore putting away all filthiness and the abundance of malice, receive in meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

1 Pet. 1:23—Having been regenerated not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible, through the living and abiding word of God.
