THE SOWER

THE SOWER

PS. 126:6

INTRODUCTION:

Note: God has given us a chance in America to get busy about

the greatest business, work in the world.

Note: Three things in view here that we need to learn from, and

relate to: (1) the brokenness of the sower. (2) the burden the sower, and (3) the blessing of the sower

I. THE BROKENNESS OF THE SOWER

A. brokenness is evident in the way this sower is weeping

Note: v. 6a “He that goeth forth and weepeth … “

1. these tears aren’t superficial in nature

2. these tears are supernatural in nature

B. brokenness is seen in where this sower is walking

Note: v. 6b “[he’s] going forth”

1. he’s going away from something

Note: Mark 1:16-18 “Now as he … followed him”

2. he’s going after something

Note: we have to go after the lost

II. THE BURDEN OF THE SOWER

Note: v. 6c “he is] bearing precious seed.’”

A. the burden connected with our being in possession of this seed

1. what we understand about the preciousness of this seed

2. what we understand about the purpose of this seed

B. the burden connected with our being responsible for the planting of this seed

Note: Matt. 13:3b “Behold a sower went forth …sow “

1. there is a disinclination that we find in our flesh to witness to the lost

2. there are the difficulties that we face in the field to witness to the lost

III. THE BLESSING OF THE SOWER

A. the rejoicing that is promised to soul winners

Note: v. 6d “[he will] doubtless come … rejoicing “

1. the soul winner will enjoy a happy conscience because of his sowing

2. the soul winner will enjoy a happy companionship in his sowing

Note: Ps. 68:11 “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of {h} those that published it”

B. the reaping that is promised to soul winners

Note: v. 6e “[this sower will finally be] bringing his sheaves with him”

1. there’ll be soul’s that will be seen by us

2. there’ll be soul’s that will be a surprise to us
