Mark 4

In Mark chapter 4 Jesus said that a sower sows the word. The sower is the person saying something, a word. A word is something spoken. Jesus also said the Kingdom of God is like a man casting seed into the ground. The seed is the words spoken and the ground is the heart. Jesus also compared the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed. It is the smallest seed in the earth. Paul said in Romans that faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Our faith starts out really small like the mustard seed when we first get born again. Our faith grows when we read God’s Word. I personally read the Word out loud to myself. Jesus told His disciples that they have been given the knowledge to understand the mystery of the Kingdom of God. I believe this applies to us today. We must understand this parable. Jesus told His disciples that if you don’t understand this parable then how can you understand all parables? It is important that we understand this parable. I believe this parable is about how important God’s Word is and how powerful our words are when we speak. Proverbs says that death and life are in the power of the tongue. After Jesus explained to His disciples this important parable, He went to show them how powerful our words are. (Mark 4:35-41) When evening came Jesus told His disciples, “Let us pass over to the other side”. Jesus and His disciples got in a boat and went across the sea. We know that a great storm came while Jesus was asleep in the boat. The disciples got totally scared and woke Jesus up saying don’t You care that we are about to die. Jesus woke up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, PEACE, BE STILL. Everything calmed down. Jesus said why are you so afraid and how is it that you have no faith? Jesus had just explained to them how important words are. Our words are very powerful. We must understand this parable. Read it, understand it, and do not let satan come and steal what is sown in your heart!
