The word of God is truth and we are to stand on the word of God not to be swayed or tempted by our flesh. Being grounded in his word, praying for his wisdom and understanding and not our own in order to be obedient to his word. James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only deceiving your own selves.
Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
God’s Word The Outcome
|A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. Luke 8:5
|Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. Luke 8:12
|And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. Luke 8:6||They on a rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temperature they fall away. Luke 8:13|
|And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. Luke 8:7||And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
|And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. Luke 8:8||But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. Luke 8:15|
Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
