In an earlier post I have shared the hidden message in the Parable of the Sower. In this post, I would like to highlight 3 truths which we should be mindful of:
1. Only Some Are Chosen
In Mathew 13:11-17, Jesus explained that he spoke in parables so that only those whom God has chosen to give the knowledge of the mysteries of heaven will understand the message of God preached to them.
2. Even the Little Will Be Taken Away
In Matthew 13:12 and 13:19, it is stated that Satan seeks to remove whatever memories of the word of God in people.
3. Mystery Revealed: Fruitfulness Began With Spending Time With God
As Jesus taught us in John 15:4 and in Luke 10:42, that we should abide in Him for apart from Him we can achieve nothing. Between doing things for God and spending time with God, Jesus taught us that the better thing is to spend time with God. This is one mystery of the Kingdom of God. It is not by our works. It is by our walk with Jesus.
Hence, my friend, if you have receive Jesus as your Saviour, rejoice, for you have been chosen. If you have not received Jesus into your life, simply say this simple prayer and you will have Jesus in your life forever:
” Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I receive you as my Lord and Saviour for my life. Thank you that through what you did for me on the cross, my sins are forgiven and I am now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen. “
