Casting Seed

Dear Prayer Partners,

Thank you for your prayers. I want to highlight the importance of your prayers. While reading the Word of God, early this morning, I came upon this simple verse: “The kingdom of God is like a man who casts seed upon the soil; and goes to bed at night and gets up by day, and the seed sprouts up and grows--how, he himself does not know” (Mark 4:26-27). The farmer can do a lot of work, but he is dependent on that God-principle—God causes the growth (1 Cor. 3:6).  

BFF has three foci—think CDE

Create: BFF creates all sorts of Christian training resources including books, videos, articles, mp3s, slides, handouts, etc.

Distribute: BFF distributes resources in many different forms, including internet, book, seminar training, mentoring, etc.

Empower: God causes the growth.

Jesus reminds us that though we can develop a vast number of seeds  (Create) and sow them around the world (Distribute), we need the Lord to bring them to life (Empower). We have cast seed (i.e., all our Biblical resources) into the soil of the world, but need His hand to secretly work in that wife in Myanmar, that pastor in India, that student in America, that researcher in Germany, etc. We don’t know how God uses your prayers to bring about this new growth, but He does. Please continue to pray CDE for us and all those around the world that encounter BFF resources.

BFF: Create - Distribute - Empower
