Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop – some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.” Mark 4:20
In this parable, Jesus is talking about three kind of believers. Say for example, three brothers got saved 5 years back on the same day, after 5 yrs one brother has Spiritually grown 30% and second brother hasSpiritually grown 60% and the third brother has grown to the maximum of 100% Spiritually in 5 yrs. All three brothers got saved on same day but Spiritually there is a huge difference after 5 years. Yes, it is possible!
Its not because third brother got saved differently from first and second brother, instead the third brother took God’s Word seriously and carefully applied in His life by obeying God’s Word, he was wholeheartedly walking in the Lord every day and growing in salvation when compare to that of other two brothers, that made the difference. Because, our God is impartial God who will not make the difference, His Word has the same potential, its the heart that receives His Word varies and so is the produce. Good ground yields good produce and bad ground yields bad produce.
It is so important to listen to God’s Word each and every day of our life! I have 1 month old son Joshua who always craves for milk for every 2-3 hrs, we feed him and he is happy, God’s Word teaches us to crave for milk not just every day but every hour like how babies crave for milk. Also, the milk need to digest so that it will bring nourishment to body. Likewise, we need to be the doers of God’s Word rather than just listeners so that it will bring nourishment or Spiritual growth, overfeeding without digestion kills. We need His grace to walk in His ways! Let us continue to grow in our Lord Jesus Christ and walk in His everlasting love! Amen!
