Recently, while searching in the "depths" of our basement for another item, I came across a bucket of black walnuts that I had hulled and dried many years ago. I had forgotten I had them. When I cracked one, I found it was as fresh and tasty as ever perhaps more so! If I were to plant these walnuts, they, no doubt, would produce the same kind of walnut trees from which they came. That tree has been dead for many years.
Jesus said, in His parable of the Sower, that the Word of God is the seed of the kingdom. Luke 8:11. The Bible has been forgotten by millions of men and women; yet, it has retained its life through the centuries. If the Word is planted in honest hearts (good ground), it will produce the same kind of disciples it produced almost 2,000 years ago!
Peter said we are born again by incorruptible seed - the word of God "which liveth and abideth for ever." 1 Peter 1:22-25. We pray our humble efforts in the pages of this paper will help a lost soul discover the life-giving kernel of the Word of God.
Our goal continues to be 2,800 copies in circulation each month. Last month our circulation was 2,636. We need your help in achieving and maintaining our readership. Will you help? In doing so, you may help another discover the seed of eternal life. Pray for us.
