Honest, Good-Hearted People
Honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word.
And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !
The context of the subject verse is the parable of the sower. And the seed mentioned is the word of God. Through this parable, Jesus talked about different kinds of people in this world. And the honest and good-hearted people are the ones the subject verse refers to.
Truly, the honest and good-hearted people shall cling on to the God’s word. They shall take the God’s word with all seriousness and imbibe the word. For by doing so, they shall patiently produce a huge harvest. Just like a farmer who plants the seeds and waits patiently for the produce. The Bible says that they produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted.
But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.James 1:22 NLT
Beloved, from all the above we could draw the following conclusion. The children of God — the honest and good-hearted people shall practically apply the word of God in their lives. They do not have laid-back attitude, but always believe to do the God’s word now. As the above verse says, we shall not just listen, but do what the God’s word says. Moreover, we are to persevere in our work and patiently wait for the result.
Therefore brethren, let us be like these honest and good-hearted people who keep their patience and persevere in the Lord’s work. Furthermore, let us produce the results as a huge-harvest for the glory of the Living God. In Jesus precious and matchless name. Amen.
