Mark 4:10-20

VARYING RESPONSES TO THE WORD

“Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop – thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown” Mark 4:20, NIV.

Agriculturists affirm that one of the factors that contribute to a sustainable harvest is the quality of the soil. A soil that is too alkaline or too acidic will make the plant sick and hinder fruitfulness. Jesus’ parable touches on four types of soil – heart – which received the seed of God’s Word. The seed that fell by the way side could not take root at all because Satan came and took it away. The stony heart initially received the word with gladness but got offended at the word when persecution arose because the word has not gained root within. The word sown among thorns has the propensity to grow and blossom but it was choked up by the thorns.
The cares of this world, quest for riches and pleasure are thorns which overpower the seed of the Word in our hearts. Jesus then recommends that the kind of heart that will sustain God’s Word to maturity and fruitfulness is that which is free of clutters just as a soil of good quality will aid a plant’s growth. Apostle Paul enjoins us: “Let the Word of Christ – the Message – have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives” (Col. 3:16). What clutters do you need to get rid of to make space for the Word of God to find root and bring multiple fruits in your life?

Birthday Blessing: “… ‘I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span” Exodus 23:26.

RBT Passage: Deuteronomy 33-34

“We cannot bear fruit without the water of God’s Word”. – Anonymous.
