Parable of the Sower

Dear Friends, We thank the Lord for this new opportunity to serve Him in the year of our Lord 2020. During January we will study 6 different parables. They focus us on what our King Jesus is like and what He requires. The key question in the Bible is always :- Who is God ? meaning what is He like. The more we understand the character of our God the more we will grow in our relationship with Him. Today in Matthew 13:1-23 the emphasis is on the power of the seed to effect growth. In this parable we can see varying responses to God’s Word so we should not be discouraged when many seem uninterested or reject the Word of God. Jesus encourages us that there will be those who will respond to the Word of God and grow in faith. I am very encouraged that over the last 4 years we have seen our sowing or spreading of God’s Word increase and though we have seen many who have said “no thank you” we have seen others who have responded to the Word of God by hearing and understanding and this has led to spiritual growth. Keep sharing God’s Word with people and trust God’s power to open people’s hearts to His love. God’s Blessing Rev David O'Mara
