“The Seed” is a message from Pastor Tim Rigdon of The Well at New Covenant in Providence, Kentucky (USA). This is a western Kentucky church digging a wellspring of revival in rural America through the preaching of God’s Word and under the direction of the Holy Spirit. This is a place where you can come as you are, you won’t leave the same!

Mark 4:3-9 TPT
3 “Consider this: A farmer went out to sow seeds.
4 As he cast his seeds some of it fell along the beaten path and soon the birds came and ate it.
5 Other seeds fell onto gravel with no topsoil and the seeds quickly sprouted since the soil had no depth.
6 But when the days grew hot, the sprouts were scorched and withered because they had insufficient roots.
7 Other seeds fell among the thorns, so when the seeds sprouted so did the thorns, crowding out the young plants so that they could produce no grain.
8 But some of the seeds fell onto good, rich soil that kept producing a good harvest. Some yielded thirty, some sixty—and some even one hundred times as much as was planted!
9 If you understand this, then you need to respond.”
Mark 4:14-20 TPT
14 Let me explain: The farmer sows the Word as seed,
15 and what falls on the beaten path represents those who hear the Word, but immediately Satan appears and snatches it from their hearts.
16 The seed sown on gravel represents those who hear the Word and receive it joyfully,
17 but because their hearts fail to sink a deep root into the Word, they don’t endure for long. For when trouble or persecution comes on account of the Word, they immediately wilt and fall away.
18 And the seed sown among thorns represents those who hear the Word,
19 but they allow the cares of this life and the seduction of wealth and the desires for other things to crowd out and choke the Word so that it produces nothing.
20 “But the seed sown on good soil represents those who open their hearts to receive the Word and their lives bear good fruit—some yield a harvest of thirty, sixty, even one hundred times more than was sown!”
John 12:24 NIV
24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
