Let him hear! (2)

The challenge of the parable of the sower is powerful - for those who have ears to hear it.

What is the difference between one hearer of the word and another?

The difference in the parable was not in the sower. It was not in the seed sown. The same seed was sown everywhere, by one sower.

The difference was where it fell.

If there are people in the world who are far more godly and useful in Christ's service than you or I are, then why is that?

Why is one believer prayerful, holy, self-denying, resistant to the world, serious, Bible-studying - a shining light, a fruitful servant of Christ; and yet you are not?

It's not the sower.

It's not the seed.

It's the ground that the seed falls in.

Lord, change my heart today, whatever it costs and wherever it takes me.
