Gather or Scatter

Luke 11:23-24 23 “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.  (NIV)

 According to this statement by Jesus, the sign that we are not against Him is our seed gathering.  What He means by seed gathering goes with the last thing He told His disciples before He ascended back to heaven.  Matthew 28:19-20 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (NIV)  We must seriously ask ourselves, are we gathering seeds or scattering them?  The seeds we are to gather are the lost.  We gather them in several ways.  They see and hear us but do they see and hear God and His love in and through us?  Are we actively seeking them out and loving them as the Father loves them and us?  What do they see and hear when we stand in a long line somewhere?  Do they see the fruit of patience, one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit?  Let us continue on with this train of thought as we seek the Holy Spirit to reveal where we are scattering rather than gathering then choose to repent and, with the help of the Holy Spirit, gather as much as we possibly can.
