Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the Word of the Kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the Word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the Word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the Word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the Word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the Word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (Mat 13:18-23)
Jesus explained the battle in the hearts of men, hearts that are desperately wicked, and only through the Spirit and the engrafted Word can be redeemed. Those that hear and believe are born again, those that reject, ignore, scoff, or walk away from GOD and His Word, were never in the Kingdom, no matter their outward appearance or behaviour. The forces of darkness and evil, which oppose GOD and the things of GOD, seek to keep people from hearing and beliving GOD's Word. They do and will use any means to distract, discredit, detract, and dispute the Holy Word of GOD. But GOD will prevail, and in those that hear and believe, His Word has power, and will produce fruit in and from the believer who observes to do all that GOD has commanded.
We are to take in GOD's Word, through hearing, not only with the ears, but with the spirit, that it might bless us and take root. We are to read, that we might know what it says. We are to study to shew ourselves approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly divinding the Word of Truth. We are to memorize, hiding GOD's Word in our heart, that we might not sIn against GOD. We are to meditate, thinking on these things, that we might observe to do all that is written therein, and then we may make our way prosperous and then we shall have good success. We are to apply GOD's Word, living the Gospel we preach, and knowing its Doctrines, learning from its reproofs, changing our behaviour because of its corrections, and obeying its instructions in righteousness, that we might be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
The work that GOD has for us to do as His ambassadors, is to minister to the hurting and those in need. We are ministers of reconciliation, pointing others to Christ and His Word. We are to disciple one another in His Word, speaking the Truth in love, that others may know that we are His disciples. We are to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, through His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, to all who will hear and believe, that in believing they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
