As the sower went out, some seeds (The seed is “The Word”) fell by the wayside, and the birds devoured them, some fell on stony ground where they had not much earth, and though they sprung up, they were scorched by the sun and withered away.
Some seeds fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up and choked them.
But, others fell into good ground: These are they that Hear the Word, and understands it, which also bringeth forth much fruit. (Matthew 13:1-23).
How many sermons have you heard? How much of what you’ve heard, have you understood and applied to your life ? Is the word bringing forth fruit in you. ? Is it changing you to become more like Him> Is your ming being renewed.?
So many questions and more. We attend Church so often, hear the word and yet still the same.
Same attitudes, habits, lust, worldliness, filthy conversations, pride ,envy ,Jealousy, bitterness, unforgiveness, and the list goes on. But we’ve been in church for years hearing the word–in one ear and out he other.
As much word as some of us have already heard we should be far better than we are but, the word falls by the wayside, on stony groung and among thorns. So little falls on good ground.
We’ve forgotten that it’s our responsibility to receive the word and apply it. Hear the word and do it. The word must be believed and acted upon. Be not hearers only but doers also. (James 1:22).
Learning Obedience is therefore the primary focus at “The Wisdom Centre”
Since we are in fact naughty by nature, Obedience must be learned. We send our dogs to obedience school so they will not pee in the house, yet as children of God we give so little attention to obeying the word of God. In rebellion we are determined to do things our way, yet we want God’s blessings.
All these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God… (Deuteronomy 28:1)
God Is Not A Man –He cannot lie. Whatsoever he say’s to you–Do It.
Just do it…
