Multiplication Adds Up

7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” Genesis 9:7

After the Lord admonished Noah and his family about violence, he told them to populate the earth. Of course all of that would take time with only four couples on the planet. Four thousand years later there are 7 billion of us and that’s not taking into account those who have already passed away.

The same happens in the spiritual world. The Word of God spread when twelve people told 1000 or 300 people about the gospel, and those who became believers from among them told many others. It’s easy to see how effective this method is. With the media available at our fingertips, it’s possible to see the Gospel spreading exponentially.

First it takes willing hearts. If you’re comfortable believing that you don’t need to change other people, then this message is not for you.

Secondly, it takes people willing to share their life story with others. No preaching allowed. No formal education required. You are just point people to the truth that you found. In other words, you’re just a beggar showing people where the bread is.

Lastly, the Holy Spirit gives us opportunities and hearts every day if we choose to see them.

This post isn’t meant to drag you down by saying you’re not doing enough for the Kingdom. It’s just a reminder that the Holy Spirit does the saving; we just are mouthpieces.
