Matthew 13:3-9 – Which Soil Has The “Seed Of God’s Word” Fell On In Your Heart?

Matthew 13:3-9 – 3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The parable of the “Sower” can also be found in Matthew 13, Mark 4 and Luke 8.

The word “Parable” is from the Greek “Parabole” which denotes a placing beside. Jesus is using the Parable of the Sower to teach about and illustrate His kingdom.

The Sower is a major part of the parable. The sower of the seed (Word of God) is Jesus.

The seed is the word of God according to Luke 8:11. The ground is our heart. It is the place where the Word of God tries to take root. The path, the rock, the thorns and the fertile soil represent the condition in which the word finds our heart.

Which soil has the “Seed-Word of God” fell on in your heart? HUMMM!!!

Is your heart like the hard-trodden soil of the path? How many times have we heard the teachings of Christ on how to live a good Christian life and not followed them?

Is your heart hardened like the rock? Do we receive the word of God with joy, but it takes no root, and after a quick initial growth spurt, our faith dries up and we fall away?

Is our heart like the thorny ground? Do we hear God’s message, only to have it choked out by the cares of life?
Which soil has the seed fell on in your heart?

The “good soil” should be the ground of our hearts that the Word of God takes root in daily. The word of God, the Seed that falls on the good soil of our heart, the soil that has been tilled with Christ, fertilized with the teachings of the Gospel and watered with the Holy Spirit have no other choice but to produce fruit for the Kingdom.

The Word of God “Seed” has no power unless it is sown. Christ wants everyone exposed to the Gospel. We must bear fruit by spreading the seed. We must not let bad influences harden us to the truth. We must resist Satan. We must avoid the dangers which go along with materialism, worldliness, etc.

If our roots in God are strong and healthy our outward lives will automatically show the life and nature of Christ to those around us.

Will your roots withstand the storms of life?


God bless and do tell the Lord thank you!

I love you all with the love of Christ!

About Minister Aiken

I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I received my call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 16, 2003 and I was licensed as a Minister on Sunday, December 30, 2007. I am an Associate Minister, Sunday School Teacher for Adult # 1 Class, Instructor for New Members Class, Youth Church Teacher, Senior Missionary, and Blogger. I have worked in the medical field for 31 years. I am the wife of one husband whom I have been married to for the last 27 years. Out of this union came one son. I have always been an advocate of God's Word even prior to salvation. Now that I am saved, I have taken it to another level with the help of the Holy Spirit. I am what others call "Radicle for Christ!" Yes, I LOVE JESUS! I started sending out daily devotional messages over 12 years ago via email. In March of 2011 the Lord told me that it was time for the daily devotionals to be taken to the world wide web. I did not understand how nor belive that God could use me for such a task as this, but thanks be to God who knows all things. I obeyed God and the rest was history. This ministry has truly been a blessing to the heart and soul of many that are saved and unsaved. Many lives have been changed, energized, transformed, restored, refreshed, and clansed by the Power of the Holy Spirit through God's spoken words from His Bible. Romans 10:14-15 - How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15-And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Truly, this Ministry is a blessing from God to mankind everywhere. No great works has any man done that he or she should boast! "TELL THE LORD THANK YOU" is indeed the Lord's will for you and I. God truly is an "AWESOME WONDER!" I love Him!! He is my Lord and Savior!!! Romans 8:31- If God be for you, who could be against you? It was Christ who died for us. 1 Thessalonian 5;18-Give thanks in all things for this is the Lord will concerning you and I in Christ Jesus. Matthew 6:33-But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
