ORDER

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Mark 4:26-32

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Ecclesiastes 3:1

There is an order, even in the bearing of fruit. The fruit you may bear at a certain stage of your life may just be a prelude to other fruit that God has in store for you.

For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; First the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. Mark 4:28

First the blade, then the ear and after that, the full corn. That is the order in which it comes. Some people are going to be full-time pastors but God wants them to start as lay pastors.

Some people are going to be great evangelists but in the first part of their ministry, they may be pastoring a church. God has called some of you to have huge churches. Before this full corn will appear, the blade and the ear will appear first.

There are pastors who stand in huge auditoriums every Sunday. But it did not begin that way. For some of them the first ten years of ministry only produced “the blade”.

Keep going and “the ear” is going to come forth; finally the full corn is going to be manifested to all.
