Parable of the Sower

| March 28, 2013

The Word of God must be planted into the heart of man.
Pray for a good heart
Be converted
The devil will steal the word Of God from your heart
Jesus is the sower
The seed is the word of God
My burden is light
Life changing event
How do I get faith?

Matthew 13:1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the
sea side.

Matthew 13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so
that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the

Matthew 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying,
Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

Matthew 13:4 And when he sowed, some [seeds] fell by the way side,
and the fowls came and devoured them up:

Matthew 13:5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much
earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

Matthew 13:6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because
they had no root, they withered away.

Matthew 13:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up,
and choked them:

Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth
fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

Matthew 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest
thou unto them in parables?

Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given
unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it
is not given.

Matthew 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall
have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken
away even that he hath.

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they
seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Matthew 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which
saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye
shall see, and shall not perceive:

Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and [their]
ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any
time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and
should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I
should heal them.

Matthew 13:16 But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your
ears, for they hear.

Matthew 13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and
righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see, and
have not seen [them]; and to hear [those things] which ye hear, and have
not heard [them].

Matthew 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

Matthew 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and
understandeth [it] not, then cometh the wicked [one], and catcheth away
that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the
way side.

Matthew 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the
same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

Matthew 13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a
while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word,
by and by he is offended.

Matthew 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that
heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of
riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Matthew 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he
that heareth the word, and understandeth [it]; which also beareth fruit,
and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The
kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

Matthew 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares
among the wheat, and went his way.

Matthew 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth
fruit, then appeared the tares also.

Matthew 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto
him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then
hath it tares?

Matthew 13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The
servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

Matthew 13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye
root up also the wheat with them.

Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the
time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the
tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into
my barn.

Matthew 13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The
kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took,
and sowed in his field:

Matthew 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is
grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the
birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of
heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Matthew 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in
parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

Matthew 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the
prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things
which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the
house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the
parable of the tares of the field.

Matthew 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good
seed is the Son of man;

Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children
of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one];

Matthew 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is
the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the
fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

Matthew 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they
shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which
do iniquity;

Matthew 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall
be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the
kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid
in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy
thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

Matthew 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant
man, seeking goodly pearls:

Matthew 13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went
and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Matthew 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that
was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

Matthew 13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat
down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

Matthew 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels
shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

Matthew 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there
shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 13:51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these
things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

Matthew 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe [which
is] instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man [that is]
an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure [things] new
and old.

Matthew 13:53 And it came to pass, [that] when Jesus had finished
these parables, he departed thence.

Matthew 13:54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught
them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said,
Whence hath this [man] this wisdom, and [these] mighty works?

Matthew 13:55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother
called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Matthew 13:56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then
hath this [man] all these things?

Matthew 13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto
them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in
his own house.

Matthew 13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their

The words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and His disciples are what all Christians are to obey and follow, not man's traditions, superstitions or doctrines of ungodly men. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." You have a choice to make, to believe HIs Word or to reject it, it's up to you. My purpose is to help you see the truth and connect with the Living God, your Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
