People often want salvation “on their own terms”, with their own timing, and with the answers they want to hear. In the parable of the sower Jesus explains how our own priorities and our own desires can get in the way and keep us from understanding His words and cause us to fall away.
Will you be faithful in the face of opposition or persecution? Will you fall away when the going gets tough? Is your faith real and alive and does it prove itself out in action? Do you approach God with confidence and thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6)? What kind of soil are you?
Easter can be a time of growth and renewal if we recommit ourselves to God! Will Easter be a turning point for you? Think about it. Pray about it. Be ready.
