It may be that we go through months, and even years, in a spiritual wilderness, becoming cynical about the Christian faith, doubting that God is in control and doubting his promises. It’s vital that we keep our focus on the beauty, sacrifice, love and grace of Jesus. It’s vital that he, and he alone, is the object of our faith.
Parables give us the best chance of seeing, hearing and understanding spiritual truths and the parable of the sower is no exception. The problem is with us; with our dull hearts, our stopped ears, our closed eyes, and our innate spiritual unconsciousness.
Each individual is represented by one of the 4 different soil types referenced in this parable. As Christians we should desire with all our heart to be the good, fruitful, soil.
Our inheritance can never perish, spoil or fade. It can never be lost. It can never be defiled by our sin, as nothing impure will enter heaven. The things we have there will never decay or wear out or be lost, as everything we chase in this world ends up being. The resurrection guarantees us a glorious future.
