So often, when the Word of God is sounded forth in preaching, many turn to their left and right ensuring themselves that the message is for another and not for them. Yet the parable of the sower which is before us presented in this message is most assuredly for you!! Precious soul, do you find yourself struggling to bear fruit in this Christian walk? Is the Word of God failing to make inroads into your heart so as to produce fruit in your life? Say not what is wrong with the Word of God but say what is wrong with the ground into which it is being sown!!
Four different soils are presented in the parable before us, representing four different conditions of the heart; the wayside, the stony, the thorny and the good. By God's grace, may we be diligent to ascertain in honesty which ground the seed finds itself in this day!
