An Appointment with Christ: The Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:1) Part 6
Dr. Roberto Miranda
We are almost concluding with this long exposition of the parable of the sower found in Matthew, Chapter 13. We have taken time because as you can see there are many deep and very profitable truths expressed in this brief but profound and rich parable of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We've talked about the different ways people receive the word of the Gospel. So far we have focused on inappropriate ways of receiving the Gospel that unfortunately, as we see, of the 4 types of land on which the seed falls, three, that is to say three quarters, are inadequate land, land that does not receive the seed in the correct way. Unfortunately we could say the same of humanity. Most of the people today receive the word but do not receive it in the correct way and miss the opportunity to have reconciliation and peace with God and to enjoy the wonderful blessings that God has for them. Only a minority often receives the word of God in the proper way and this is not God's desire. God does not want anyone to perish, says the word, but rather that all proceed to repentance and be saved by receiving Christ Jesus as savior and Lord.
