"By the grace of God Reach the Nations Ministrires is sowing seed of God’s word in Khairpur," Shakeel Rhemat says. This past weekend, he visited five villages and reports the following:
Here Shakeel preached from Matthew 13:18-23, the “Harvest Story.” Here's a little of his message:
"When anyone hears news of the kingdom and doesn’t take it in, it just remains on the surface, and so the Evil One comes along and plucks it right out of that person’s heart. This is the seed the farmer scatters on the road.
The seed cast in the gravel represents the person who hears and instantly responds with enthusiasm. But there is no soil of character, and so when the emotions wear off and some difficulty arrives, there is nothing to show for it.
The seed cast in the weeds is the person, who hears the kingdom news, but weeds of worry and illusions about getting more and wanting everything under the sun strangle what was heard, and nothing comes of it.
