An Appointment with Christ: The Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:1) Part 3
Dr. Roberto Miranda
In these last messages we are sharing the parable of the sower found in the Gospel according to Saint Matthew, Chapter 13 and we have been talking about the different hearts of man, the different ways in which different people receive the word of the Gospel and how we have to be very careful to compare ourselves with these different types of people that the Lord Jesus Christ exposes in this parable and make sure that we do not fall into the category of those types of infertile, arid, barren land that when they receive the word of the Gospel do not receive it in the proper way but waste it, and the seed instead of bearing fruit remains sterile.
The Lord wants us to be good soil, fertile soil, fruitful soil, receptive soil that embraces the seed and allows that seed to enter deeply into its fruit. Unfortunately, every day, thousands and even hundreds of thousands of people listen to the word of the Gospel, listen to the precious message of salvation and for one reason or another reject it, for one reason or another neglect it, underestimate it and then their lives lose hope. opportunity to be blessed and fertilized by the precious seed of the Gospel. How sad! What a pity! Because the Lord wants, says the Bible, that no one be lost, he does not want anyone to be lost, but rather that all proceed to salvation. Sadly, however, so many people are like unsuitable soil for the precious and good and solid and life-filled seed of the Gospel falls upon them but finds no propitious reception.
