Do you apply what you read?

Mark 4:14-20 (AMP)

14 The sower sows the Word. 15 The ones along the path are those who have the Word sown [in their hearts], but when they hear, Satan comes at once and [by force] takes away the message which is sown in them. 16 And in the same way the ones sown upon stony ground are those who, when they hear the Word, at once receive and accept and welcome it with joy; 17 And they have no real root in themselves, and so they endure for a little while; then when trouble or persecution arises on account of the Word, they immediately are offended (become displeased, indignant, resentful) and they stumble and fall away. 18 And the ones sown among the thorns are others who hear the Word; 19 Then the cares and anxieties of the world and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamour and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless. 20 And those sown on the good (well-adapted) soil are the ones who hear the Word and receive and accept and welcome it and bear fruit-some thirty times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some [even] a hundred times as much.

We all hear the word of God but we don’t all receive it the same way. Some of us take home what we hear and study it and some of us forget it in a couple of hours. Is your heart receptive to the Word of God? What do you do to sow the Word into your heart and your life?

A lot of time we hear and read the Word but then we cannot remember what it stated. That may be because we do not meditate on what we read and hear. It is not good enough just to listen to a weekly sermon. We have to apply what we hear to our lives. It’s important that we take the time to study ourselves.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
