READ: Matthew 13:3-6
3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 14-17
A notable character is represented in our Bible text and is worth learning from: there are people who have strong personality traits, and this makes it difficult to convince them of anything. Their heart is a stony place with no flexibility for change. They sometimes justify bad behaviour by saying. “This is who I am. If you don’t like me this way, then that’s too bad for you. I can’t change!” This unpleasantness is what they usually exhibit in Christianity, that’s if they actually surrendered their lives to Jesus in the first place. These people appear very tough and strong, but when the real issues of life show up, their backs hit the ground.
Ezekiel 36:26 says:
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh”
At the point of salvation, there must be an exchange in the spirit, your hard heart is exchanged with a soft one that is receptive to God’s word which is necessary for your growth.
Father, please give me a heart of flesh that your Spirit can communicate with often
HYMN 3 – ALL TO JESUS I SURRENDER
- All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.
I surrender all.
I surrender all:
All to Thee,
my blessed saviour
I surrender all
- All to Jesus I surrender,
Humbly at His feet I bow;
Worldly pleasures all forsaken.
Take me, Jesus, take me now.
- All to Jesus I surrender.
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power,
Let Thy blessing fall on me.
- All to Jesus I surrender,
Now I feel the sacred flame
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory to His name!
