Parable: The Sower & The Seed

MATTHEW 13: 1-9 On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow.And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them.Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears to hear, let him hear

By using this parable. Christ illustrated the work of the heavenly Sower. Jesus wants us to think of the gospel seed and the sowing as bringing people back to God. The same law that governs earthly seed sowing governs the sowing of heavenly truth. The crowd that came to hear Jesus continued to increase, and the people pressed so close to Him that He was practically forced off the beach and into the lake. So Jesus climbed into a boat, pushed away from the shore, and taught the crowd from the boat. As He looked up the hillside, He saw sowers throwing out their seed others harvesting an early crop. That’s when Jesus gave the parable of the sower and the reaper.

Christ came to sow the seeds if truth, but the Pharisees focused on traditions and theories that they put in place of the Word of God. Today many professed ministers of the gospel do not accept the whole bible as God’s Word. The portions of Scripture that they do teach rests on their own authority, and the bible is robbed of it’s power to create spiritual life. Jesus taught that the whole of Scripture is of unquestionable authority. Instead of discussing false theories or trying to correct the opponents of the gospel, follow the example of Christ. His favorite theme was the abundant love and grace of our heavenly Father and the holiness of His character and law. When faith is lost in God’s Word, there is no heavenly guidance, no safeguard. Teachers of truth must make the Word of God their own by daily personal experience and know that Christ is their wisdom, righteousness and redemption.
