And Jesus said, "The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how. The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.
This Jesus spoke to tell about the power of the Word of God. The Word is scattered in the world. Over time we see the fruit of this scattered Word. It bears a harvest of salvation, even though oftentimes we know not how or when.
Truly God’s gracious action that by the power of the Holy Spirit that He produces saving faith by His scattered Word
