Psalm 126:6 – He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
This verse offers a simple, yet profound, tremendous outline for witnessing!
1) “He that goeth forth.” There is no better plan for evangelism. We must be ever looking for those who we can witness too.
The command is never for the lost to go find a church and hear the gospel. The command is always for the saved to tell them the good news of salvation. Opportunities pass quickly. We must commit ourselves to go.
2) “And weepeth.” How concerned are we for those who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior? We need to ask God to place a real burden in our hearts that will lead to compassion for the condition of those without Jesus living all around us!
3) “Bearing precious seed.” The “precious seed” is none other than the Word of God.
“Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”(Ro10:17). “(We are) born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever”(1Pt1:23).
As we witness, the Word of God is the “precious seed” that we share.
4) “Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Here is God’s promise of blessing for all who invest time in this business.
Who in our circle of family and friends is in need of the life changing salvation that comes through knowing Jesus Christ?! All of us know of someone! Probably several someones.
Think of what a blessing is in store for them, and for us! if we will witness to them and win them to Christ.
The clear truth of the Bible is that Jesus Christ will save completely, forever, any and all who will place their faith in Him.
The gospel of salvation has not reached its final destination if someone in our family, or at our workplace or school, or in our neighborhood has not been saved. Never forget that witnessing is not showing what we can do for God, but rather sharing and telling what God has done for us.
We have a story to tell!!
