Pastor Kyle's Weekly Devotion

Mark 4:20, ”But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”

When Jesus preached the Good News about the coming Kingdom of God some responded favorably to His message while others rejected Him. In the parable of the sower Jesus defined the different responses people would have toward His message. In the parable He explained His ministry in terms of a sower sowing seed. Some of the seed fell on fertile soil, some seed fell on a hard path, some seed fell on rocky soil, and some seed fell on ground that grew up in thorns. The desirable outcome is found in Mark 4:20 which explains that there was a person who heard what Jesus said and was completely changed. The word (seed) settled in that persons heart and it produced a wonderful harvest explained as thirtyfold, sixtyfold and a hundredfold. This is clearly the desire that God has for every person. God desires that you hear and accept the word He speaks. As a result, your life will be marked by faithfulness to Christ. However, there is a certain opposition that can hinder a person from truly being what God desires. Some people hear the message of God and satan steals it away before it even takes root. Some people hear the message of God and may appear to make somewhat of a commitment but their commitment does not last. Soon they walk away because they become involved with the pursuit of their career, wealth, personal desires and hobbies. Others hear the word and make a perceived commitment, but they have no staying power to Christ and His mission. When persecution and tribulation arise they walk away from Christ altogether. When you truly accept Christ and His message there should be a great desire to remain faithful to Jesus no matter what. When you truly see what Jesus has done by His death on the cross you will be compelled to remain faithful to the One who spared no expense to redeem your soul sin.
