Are We Listening To God’s Word?
Matthew 13: 18-23
If you talked to people about what they heard in the sermon, on Sunday morning?
There is a great probability that you will get several answers. Why? Several factors come into play on this.
The closed heart factor, some people have this heart factor against the truth, some may even attend church, but no truth is able to penetrate because their mind is closed to any message they don’t want to follow.
The shallow heart, some people start out passionate about what Christ can do for them but fall away because of misplaced expectations when difficulties come.
The cluttered heart gives way to distractions of the world where there is no room for the Christ committed devotion, therefore no fruit is produced.
The opened heart, the heart we cultivate for the truth, one that positions us to hear, understand and apply the Scriptures to our lives.
