The Parable of The Sower – Part 1

Mark 4:14-15
14 The sower sows the word.
15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Part 1: Do you desire your faith in God to work? I would say the obvious answer would be yes. One of the areas that can be overlooked when it comes to faith is in the condition of your heart. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Kenneth Hagin who was a great man of faith once said, “Faith always comes, but faith is not always received”. When the Word is preached, faith is there, but if the heart upon which the Word comes is not good ground, that seed of the Word does not get planted and will not produce faith.

In the parable of the sower you see this truth. The first thing Jesus refers to is the Word of God as the seed that produces faith. The first of the four soil or heart conditions Jesus mentions is wayside soil. Wayside soil is the outer perimeter of the farmers field. This soil becomes hardened because it was not plowed like the rest of the field. Because the ground was hardened the birds of the air would come and immediately take the seed that was scattered their. Jesus compares this to satan, who does the same thing with believers whose hearts are not plowed and prepared for the Word.

This happens to many in church. They are not listening intently when the Word is preached. Many today are on their cell phones, or day dreaming about other things. Many just can’t wait to go home and sleep the rest of the day. Christians whose hearts are set on other things don’t produce faith, because what they heard is snatched away from them. Jesus said to take heed HOW you hear, for to him who hears more will be given, but to him who does not hear, even what he has will be taken away. If you heart is set on God, you are excited when you hear God’s Word preached.

You Are Valuable To God

1 Peter 1:18-19
18 Realize that you weren’t set free from the worthless life handed down to you from your ancestors by a payment of silver or gold which can be destroyed.
19 Rather, the payment that freed you was the precious blood of Christ, the lamb with no defects or imperfections.

Several years ago I was watching a car auction and they had a very rare car that sold for 1.2 million. Because it was rare, someone was willing to pay a lot of money for it. What makes something valuable? There are basically two things that determine value. One is how rare something is, and the other thing that determines value is what someone is willing to pay for it. How valuable are you to God? According to verse 19 above, very valuable.

The most valuable thing ever known to man was the precious blood of Jesus. The word precious means very valuable. That is the price God paid for every human to be liberated from their old lifestyle. How valuable does that make you to God. Many who are born again do not truly understand how valuable their life is to Him. There has never been a higher price paid for anything than what Jesus was willing to pay so that you could become a child of a God and live a new life.

In verse 18 above it says you were set free from a worthless lifestyle that came from our fathers, which was passed down from Adam because of his sin. The word used for set free is redeemed. It means to be set free by the payment of a ransom. The payment Jesus made by shedding His blood for us was all that was needed to free us from a life that had no true value to it. Stop trying to find you worth in this world. Find your worth in Christ Jesus, and you can live a life that is worthy of Him, for you are very valuable to God.

You Will Have What You Say

Mark 11:23b
…but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Many believers do not realize how powerful their words are. When you believe something in your heart and you confess it as yours, Jesus said you will have whatever you say. Notice He didn’t say you would only have what God’s Word says, but that you would have whatever you say. Because many do not understand this spiritual law, they continue to live with and put up with things that really don’t belong to them as a believer.

When you say things like my arthritis, my anxiety, my depression, my (name a sickness), etc, you are going to continue to have what you say. Here is what this is like. It is similar to when a package is delivered to your home, your confession that is saying it’s yours is like signing for the package, and you give satan the right to leave it with you. You must learn to agree with what God says about you, change what you believe in your heart and what you speak with your mouth, and get in agreement with God.

Romans 4:17 tells us that God calls those things which do not exist as though they did. God says you are healed. God says you have peace. God says you have the joy of the Lord. You must start saying what God says and believe it in your heart. Doing so you are now agreeing with what God says about you, and you are now signing for the package God has given you and rejecting what the devil wants you to have. What are you claiming in your life? You will have what you believe in your heart and speak with your mouth.

Alive With Christ

1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.

Because of Adams sin man became estranged from God, separated from the Father and life itself. All who are in Christ are no longer dead (separated from God), now through their union with Christ they are alive, reunited with the Father. We are one spirit with Him, filled with the Zoe life of God, the God-kind of life. God wants to father us and lead us into this God-kind of life, or life as God has it.

Can we really experience life as God has it? Absolutely, for Jesus Himself declared that we could pray that the Father’s will be done here on earth just as it is in heaven, and He declared that the works He did we could do also. We must take time to develop our relationship with the Father, and He will lead you into this new life. Jesus is our model to follow in developing that relationship. He taught us in Matthew 16:24 that if anyone desires to follow in His footsteps he must deny himself, and take up their cross to follow Him. The most important part of that verse is the word “desire”.

For years I taught people about denying the old self nature and taking up their cross, which means to give up our way of living and choose His way instead, but if you don’t have the desire to do so it won’t happen. What you have a desire or passion for, you will pursue no matter how challenging it may become. We are the one’s who determine what we will desire or pursue in life, no one else. If we will make our desire in life to follow Jesus, we can and will get to know our Heavenly Father, and He will lead us into this new Zoe life right here on earth, for we have been made alive with Him.

Who He Is, You Have Become

1 Corinthians 1:30
But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption.

What Jesus became for us we now have, because we are in Him. Because we are in Him we have wisdom from God (the mind of Christ), the ability to know and see things the way God does. We have righteousness (right standing with God), and with knowledge of our right standing with God we have the right to all He has provided for us.

We also have sanctification (set apart to pursue God), the ability to now know Him through an intimate relationship as we pursue Him. We also have redemption (deliverance from evil and all it’s works), for we have been redeemed from the curse of the law which includes spiritual death, sickness, and poverty. Jesus bore all these things for us and thereby purchasing our freedom from them.

Get to know Jesus through the Word of God, and the more one who is born again does so, the more you get to know the new you, because we have become one spirit with the Lord. Reading and meditating on the Word of God is spending time with the unseen Christ, for He is the Word that became flesh. The written Word reveals to us the living Word, Jesus Christ, and as you get to know Him you get to know this new you because we are “in Christ Jesus”.

Sanctification / Consecration

1 Corinthians 1:2
To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus,…

The real you, the spirit man on the inside has been sanctified in Christ. The word sanctified means to be set apart and dedicated unto God. Sanctification of our spirit man was God’s part, now we respond by the consecration of our soul and bodies. Jesus in praying for His disciples said in John 17 that we would be in the world but not of the world. In His prayer He prayed we would be sanctified by God’s Truth, for His Word is Truth.

2 Corinthians 7:1 – Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. We are to cleanse our life from all filthiness of flesh and spirit. The fleshly part deals with the sins of the flesh. The spiritual part deals with things that are harmful to you spiritually, such as false teachings and just wanting your ears tickled. Don’t fall for the “feel good” preachers who won’t teach you how to get free from the old nature.

When you know the full Truth of God’s Word, the Truth sets you free. If we will learn from the Word who we now are in Christ and become doers of the Word and not just hearers only, we will be set apart by the Truth. Become one with the Word of God by hearing and doing the Truth, and you will live a consecrated life, set apart from the world.

We Are One With The Lord

Romans 12:5
so we, being many, are one body in Christ…

The key here is “one body in Christ”. Jesus is the head, we are the body. Whatever is true of the head is true of the body. When you look at a person you don’t look at their head and body as separate, and so it is with us, for we are one with Christ. We are in Him and therefore we have become one spirit with the Lord. As He is so are we in this present world.

See yourself as one with Christ. Everything Jesus is we have become. We are more than conquerors because He is more than a conqueror. We are to rule and reign upon this earth as earth warriors, trampling upon all the powers of darkness, knowing the works of evil are no match for us because they are no match for Him. He became wisdom from God, and we have the mind of Christ.

We can come boldly to the throne of God’s grace and never be afraid to approach our Heavenly Father just as Jesus would never be afraid to do so. He is our healer, so we have been healed. Who Jesus is we have become because we have been made one with Him. When we walk in this reality by faith in our hearts, we can walk in all that He is, for we are the body of Christ.
