Jeremiah 25:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of the Lord hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened.
Jeremiah had the task of telling the people of Judah about forthcoming judgment if they continued in sin. He was not responsible for their response to his warning. We have the same burden today, and again, the response is up to the individual listener. We simply sow, water, cultivate, but God gives the increase. Thankfully we are not called upon to generate a response. We’re simply to be found faithful in proclaiming the Word. Are we? -W. H. G.
Sowing the precious seed, while the day is fast declining, Sowing the precious seed, in the twilight dim; Sowing the precious seed, neither doubting nor repining, Leaving it all to God, trusting all to Him. -W. Ogden
