Results of a Humble, Holy and Heavenly Heart

Posted in Gems

On of the verses I really love is in Jesus' Parable of the Sower. He's got to the end of those who don't do the right thing when they hear God's Word *sadness*, but now says these wonderful words to those who DO:

MARK 4:20 But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.”

1. So we simply must be "good ground," right - really ready to sop up, and receive, and take in EVERYTHING that comes from Him. Because THEN we will truly:
2. HEAR the Word, and also
3. ACCEPT the Word (ACTING upon it!)

What happens THEN? Wow, we will:
4. BEAR FRUIT, Jesus says! (Good, Good Fruit is what He wants!)

Matthew Henry says: "If the seed be sown on good ground, if the heart be humble, and holy, and heavenly, there will be good fruit, and it will abound sometimes even to a hundredfold!" (underlining mine)

May each of us have a humble, holy and heavenly heart, and so bear LOTS and LOTS of really, really, really GREAT FRUIT -- to make the Lord really, really, really HAPPY! yes

With love to you all!
