My dad is a pretty good farmer. He has been farming my entire adult life. There is a lot of hard work that goes into farming before a crop is produced. Two of the most important items in farming are the seed and the soil. Good seed usually produces a good crop, but that seed first needs to be planted on fertile soil. The sower of the seed must scatter or place the seed before it may grow. Jesus taught on this parable in Matthew 13:1-23.
This past weekend, many members of our church scattered a lot of “seed” by sharing the gospel through the 37th Annual Living Christmas Tree.
Once again, God used the Living Christmas Tree to sow the seed of the gospel. The Holy Spirit spoke into the souls of 40 individuals who indicated a profession of faith, 38 others requested more about Christ or information about FBC and there were 3,150 guests in attendance.
I personally want to thank you for the hours of sacrifice and labors of love given. The gift you have given is an eternal one. The gift and investment made by the members of First Baptist Lawton is truly amazing! Thank you and all glory be to God!
