The parable of the sower [February 3rd @ 6:18pm]

bloodborn01
-This is going to be long but I want to try to explain the parable of the sower if you have time to read this.
To a crowd of people Jesus told this parable:
“A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.”
Matthew 13:3-9 ESV

Then later Jesus goes on to explain it to his disciples saying:
“Hear then the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”
Matthew 13:18-23 ESV
Ok so now let's go through it and look at it piece by piece.
·A sower went out to sow.
- The sower is anyone who is speaking the Gospel to the world.
·Seeds
-The seeds are the word of God being preached to the world by the sower.
So now we come to were it talks about seeds falling on 4 different types of places. This is a picture of what happens in different people's hearts when they hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached. First off let's make clear what the Gospel is. The Gospel is that we are dead in our sins, deserving of eternal hell, but Jesus lived the perfect life that we could not, was crucified and died for our sins, and was raised from the dead on the third day so that we can have new life in Him.
With that said let's see what Jesus says happens in people's hearts on hearing this.

#1· ALONG THE PATH
-These are people who hear the Gospel but are not able to understand because Satan snatches it away. They are blind to the Gospel. To them it is foolishness. They do not believe because they are children of the devil.
-In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV
-The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:14 ESV
-For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
Romans 8:6-8 ESV
-Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
John 8:47 ESV
-Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep.
John 10:25-26 ESV

#2· ON ROCKY GROUND
- Jesus said these are ones who hear the word and receive it at once with joy but fall away with trouble and persecution.
- This is what I call the prosperity Gospel. These people hear the Gospel preached but what they hear is not the message that was actually preached. Instead of hearing Jesus say that the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure found in a field. A treasure so precious that the finder sold all they had to have only that treasure. Well this kind of person hears that Jesus will bless them. They say "what can I get". They don't want Jesus because he's Jesus. They want Jesus for what he can do for them. Money,fame,health, and to fix their mess and they joyfully jump on board with that. So when they don't get rich, healthy, happy, and get their marriage fixed or they are ridiculed for their claim to faith they fall away because Jesus didn't work for them. Judas was this type of person. This is a person who has believed in vain. Their faith is not in Jesus to save them from their sin but in something else entirely.

-Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you are seeking me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”
John 6:26-27 ESV

-Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:1-2 ESV

-Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.
Hebrews 3:12 ESV
-They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
1 John 2:19 ESV
-“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 7:21 ESV

#3 · AMONG THE THORNS
-Jesus said that the worries of life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word and these people are not fruitful.
This is much like the second one except these people hear that they are to sell all they own and only desire Jesus but they love the world. They count the cost of following Jesus and it is not worth it to them.
-And a scribe came up and said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead.”
Matthew 8:19-22 ESV
-Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
Matthew 19:21-22 ESV
-“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Matthew 13:44 ESV
-Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:15 ESV

#4 · GOOD SOIL

- Jesus said these are the ones who hear the word, receive it and bears fruit.
These are genuine believers who have had their hearts transformed by the hearing of the Gospel through the Holy Spirit.
-Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 ESV

-I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5 ESV

The Potter's Clay [February 1st @ 10:17pm]

stolencarousels
[ mood | bouncy ]

hey yall, you know, as I was doing my quiet time like 1 hour ago, it was amazing and i thought i could share it with yall :)

you see i've been feeling rather discouraged as of late, cuz of some mishaps and friendship problems. and tonight, i gave all my problems to God. i figured God has a solution, and i know for sure He has! can i hear an Amen! :D it was amazing. i re-dedicated my life to God in my little room. and i just cried and man.. i flipped open the bible and bam! Jeremiah 18 stuck out of the page. like it was BOLDED or something. i was like.. O_O cool man lets read it~ so Jeremiah 18.

it speaks of the potter's clay. and it really hit me cuz thats the way that God will use us. we've got to let Him mould us. and every situation that we go through, its a trial. its a trial that God has put us through, like the fire and the moulding of the clay. its only through the fire, the scorching heat, that the masterpiece can be made. and relatively, God has to put us through trials, to mature us :) someone shout HALLELUJAH!

so next time you're feeling like you can't handle the stress, be it friendships or stress, or well, whatever, know that God is moulding you, making you perfect, readying you for the day you get to heaven.

GBU PPL! 
feel free to add me~

Hi all.

I'm Laura from Finland. I'm glad i found some people like me from this website.. Ofcourse in here Finland we have many "undergound" stylish christians but somehow I wanted to get to know some of you from other lands..
I might write some entries in english to my own journal but we'll see (And you're going to notice I'm not so good in englih;).
My life's been a little messy for a while. There is so dark and cold nowadays, about -20 degrees, it's freezing. Most of people are so depressed. I've been too since God healed. But now.. I feel like i'm empty inside. I need some more.
I've been thinking to travel to some other land. Studying maybe? I'd like to find some school for christians I can go.. I want to see so much more in this lifetime.
I can just pray for that. Maybe God will lead me to somewhere other-land perhaps.
.
Huh..
Today was nice.
I bought some treasures from a local secondhand-shop. I like all bohemian stuff, I like to wear a little bit hippie and free. I found couple of cute scarfs, nice bohemian hippie-pants, few jewels, i also found that oriental lamp. I was so excited. ^^ 
I also like arts, photographing, music and dancing.. That's me.^^
.
Time is just running out.. Maybe now I'm going to get some sleep.. I hope.

I think I might have more feelings for my best guy friend, but I'm not sure and I get jealous when he doesn't hang out with me while he's in town and he is hanging out with other people.
He's a marine so he isn't in town often and I know he would date me if I asked him, but I'm afraid to be in a real relationship right now. The last few relationships I've had I knew would end and didn't matter, but I don't know if this one would, I could actually love him.
In a shallow light I've always convinced myself I couldn't care about him b/c I don't find him attractive, but I wonder if that's a lie I tell myself to keep from caring.
I don't want to be in a relationship if it's not where God wants me to be, but I don't know how to tell.
how do you know if you care or if you just are lonely and reach out to the one who cares

~All I Want for Christmas is to Free Sudanese Slaves~ [December 12th @ 7:27pm]

danparables

(This message is for all believers in unity of the faith.  X-Posted Elsewhere)


It's that time of the year!

We go Christmas shopping. We go to parties and drink spiked egg nog (if we're old enough). We see our families. We celebrate and remember Jesus Christ's birth in Christmas Eve services around the world! It's debatably the happiest of time of year.

This jubilee is not shared by everyone. There are the lonely (including internationals) without families that we need to bring to our home celebrations; there are soldiers serving around the world that we need to support; and yes, there are slaves.

I need some major prayer. I am in the process of applying for Youth With A Mission. I have no money what so ever and really need to depend on God. I have to eventually get around 6k for schooling/mission trip. I am worried that I won't be able to reach that and it scares me. I have to do this. If you would, please keep me in your prayers. I would appreciate it very much. If you would like to donate even a dollar, I would be so blessed. I have set up a paypal account if you would like to help me out. Thank you so much!

For the past few months, I've found myself drifting further and further away from God for various reasons.  Sure I noticed it happening, but I wasn't really sure what to do about it so I just let it happen.  Then comes Cornerstone Festival. Through this past week I could really feel myself getting back on track with God. There are hundreds of great bands that sing for God, speakers that speak for God, and you're surrounded by great people of all different subcultures. But it's now that Cornerstone 2008 has come to an end that the real challenge comes. It's easy to feel close to God and to speak the word when you're surrounded by other Christians, but it's when you get back into the real world that you really need to make it count. That's where you guys come in. I really don't want to slip back to where I was before Cornerstone. I know that mostly this lies in my hands and what I chose to do, but I really would appreciate prayer from all of you. Prayer that I can stay on track and keep close to Him.  It would mean a lot to me.

Thanks in advance and God bless.

Hey there everyone!

I was just curious as to whether anyone was attending Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell this year?
It's always nice meeting new people :)

Because it's the twenty-fifth anniversary they're having a big shindig where they're shutting down all of the stages besides mainstage on the fourth of July. They're going to have a huge worship service and fireworks and everything. I'm sooo excited!!

Christian podcast [June 10th @ 11:17am]

watching_ships
 Hi there! I've been a member of this community for a while and I just wanted to share something with you all that I thought might interest you.

I am a part of a ministry called GodlyGals (you can also find us at godly_gals) that focuses on equipping believers, providing a place for fellowship, and encouraging one another in our walks with Christ. It has been a phenomenal five years and God had blessed the ministry so much. Our growth lately has been such an encouragement and I look forward to the future as we move forward to where the Lord would have us go.

We have recently ventured into podcasting and it's been so great. We get to communicate with members of our community live, as well as people who just happen to drop in. We've met so many great people that way. It's really been amazing. In our podcast we talk about a variety of topics regarding the Christian faith. I really just wanted to let this community know about it so that you could stop by for one of our live shows or listen to it later (at www.godlygals.com/blog) if you can't make it to the live show. The wider our audience, the better the show.

Feel free to share this with your friends!
Our next podcast will be:

Date: Wed, June 11, 2008
Time: 09:00 PM EDT

prayer request // baby [May 4th @ 4:15pm]

quixotic___
Today in church, an amazing woman named Susan came forward during an altar call. She said (and it is not common to talk to the pastor during our altar calls, at least not while he's giving the call) that she had an urgent prayer request, and our wonderful pastor let her take the floor.

She said that she recieved a call on her cell phone from a relative, whose other relative was a 17 year old girl. The girl is pregnant, and her parents are forcing her to have an abortion this Friday (9th May). Susan asked us to pray for this girl, and for her parents, to prevent this from happening.

I don't know this girl, or her family, but I felt like God had Susan find out about this situation in my church, during this service, for a reason. What better way to reach a multitude of Christians than to go up and stand in front of them when they are worshiping?

So I'm asking you, another multitude of Christians, to pray for this girl and her unborn child. Pray also for her parents, that their hearts would be changed, or that God would forcibly prevent this murder from taking place.

Thanks.


(psalm 139:13-19 seems appropriate in this context)

For those who may be interested:

I may or may not have told you about some of the "ambient" music I've been creating for a while and that I have had plans of making it available online for purchase.
Well, I checked today and the album is live. It totals 4 songs and is over an hour and 40 minutes long. It can be purchased online from either iTunes, eMusic, or Amazon.com.

On iTunes, it can be found by either clicking the link below or by searching for Adronus in the iTunes store.

On eMusic, it can be found by clicking the link below or by searching for Adronus on eMusic.com.
http://www.emusic.com/album/Adronus-Destroia-MP3-Download/11182798.html


It's not hardcore, or any kind of core for that matter, but I made it. There's one heavy song on the album, and the rest is pretty much this long, drawn-out ambient sort of stuff.
Just thought I'd let everyone know.

Peace,

Chris

Hey  guys.
So everyone has had some intense things that need prayers lately so I feel a little inapropriate posting this prayer request, but I really do need it.
My boyfriend of nearly two and a half years ended things last night.  Now I've always told God that I want him to do what he wants with this relationship, and if this is what he wants then so be it I suppose.  But I really do feel completely lost right now, and I really am hoping that this isn't the end of us.  
If everyone could just pray for me and pray that whatever is supposed to happen will happen, it would be greatly appreciated.

Incredible praise! [March 16th @ 6:42pm]

charlottechno

I don't know if y'all have heard about the tornado outbreak yesterday and Friday in Georgia, but I live in a county that had probably 3 or 4 warnings in the time the storms were occurring. At one point, the news announced a warning, and I looked out my window to see rotation in the neighborhood next to mine.
There were many moments like this in the day, all pretty much chock full of terror. My friend Michael had left my house to go home and was forced to turn around not 5 minutes later because he saw a funnel cloud in the direction he was heading.
Later in the day, it was reported that there was a tornado headed towards the area I live in, and my friend Amy and I ran to the downstairs laundry room and prayed. I texted my good friend Andrew to pray for us, for he has a heart on fire for God, and he said he would, and to read Psalm 91. I had my Bible with me and read it aloud.
Several minutes passed, and many more, until it seemed as though the storm outside had turned to nothing more than rain. Amy and I left the room, and went to the news; the tornado had dissolved in its path.
I am amazed at the work of God and am very grateful to say my home is unscathed.

I'm also curious, has anyone else had an experience similar to this, in which nature was stopped in its tracks through prayer and God's will?

we need a miracle :( [March 16th @ 12:52am]

random_melly
Please pray for my family. My step dad Michael is in criticial condition with an artificial heart. He is very weak, and needs our prayers. I have always thought that I wanted to witness a miracle,and we are in need of one here. He is really struggling to survive, but I know with God anything is possible. Please pray that God can restore his body, renew his spirit, and provide a heart for a transplant. Our family is weak, and in need of rest. The word says that Jesus will give rest to those who are weak and burdended. May we find peace in Him, rest in Him. May the Lord work in us, and work in Michael. May things happen behind the scenes that we cannot comprehend. Please Jesus let him live. In Jesus precious and holy name. Amen.

My Testimony [March 14th @ 8:40pm]

danparables
Hi, my name is Daniel. I grew up in a Christian home and I have many times committed my life to God. Read more...Collapse )Now I have a sense of real joy and peace in my life. I may be on disability, but there is meaning to my life. I have a direction and a future as the Lord promises. In His Word, (The Bible), He says,

"God works out all things to the good of those that love Him and are called according to His purpose."
"For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future."

Many of you who post on this blog insist that you do have a relationship with God. It may be true. But keep in mind that the Bible says the road leading to everlasting (eternal) life is narrow and the road leading to destruction is wide. Read more...Collapse )

You have to know you're lost to be found.

Romans 3:23-24Read more...Collapse )
We all deserve to be in Hell. We are all slowly dying. And every man is without excuse.

Romans 1:18-20Read more...Collapse )
But there is hope if we acknowledge our sin. We need to confess Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Savior by mouth and believe that Jesus was raised from the dead after dying on the cross for our sins. Jesus will not reject us if we approach Him. Cry out Him.

Romans 10:8-13Read more...Collapse )
From here on, you begin a new life with God and live that new life with salvation securely with God in peace.

"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace."

Prayers please! [March 12th @ 11:29pm]

wahnaroo22
My daddy was just checked into the hospital for some medical problems. It looks like he'll be fine, he just has to spend a couple of days in the ER, but I would really appreciate it if you would keep him (his name is Scott) in your prayers. He doesn't yet know the love of Jesus.
Thanks!

Talking about God too much? [March 12th @ 9:58pm]

charlottechno
As someone whose life has been deeply affected by the love of God and Christ, I find myself talking about Them an awful lot. They're also often the subject of blogs and things like that on my profile sites.

Today, I was talking to my buddy Mitch, and he told me I "preach God far far far too much." I, of course, took the opportunity to talk to him about how he felt about God and hopefully reached him. I felt better about it after a while and prayed that I could be a light to him, but I couldn't stop thinking about what he said...
The sad thing is, I barely realize I'm doing it! I suppose I fully knew God and Christ are my favorite discussion topics, but I never stopped to think about how it might affect other people.

What are your thoughts?
Have you ever been told you talk about your faith too much?
How did you/would you react?
Or, on the other hand, have you ever felt like someone you know talks about God too much?
How has it affected you or others?

I'm just quite curious to see other perspectives.
