Musing Through Matthew- Good Ground Seed

Let us muse again today from Matthew 5:8-9 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we find the good place seed. In most fields whenever good seeds are sown in good ground there will be a harvest. This field is no different there was fruit in the field some spots 100, some 60, and some thirtyfold. Lord, I may not be a 100 fold field but at least let me be good ground and bring forth thirtyfold. Our Lord ends this section with the statement if you have ears hear this. This doesn’t speak of the ears on the side of the head but the ears of the heart. I bless the day I was given the ears to hear what thus says our Lord.

Musing Through Matthew- Thorny Place Seed

Let us muse again today from Matthew 5:7 and the theme of Jesus the king. In today’s study we find the thorny place seed. In the original plowing of this field the thorns would have been plowed up, but how quickly they return. My how the thorns of our evil depraved nature will choke out the stranger seed of the Word of God. Let us be on guard lest our old nature has a monopoly on what he sown in our heart.

Musing Through Matthew- Stony Place Seed

Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:5-6 the theme of Jesus the king. Today we find in our study the mention of the stony place seed. When the seed is sown here because of the rock which are heated by the earth there is quick germination. There is not roots or depth and when the fiery heat of trials come, they quickly die out. Oh how many in our churches make quick decisions and have no roots. When the trials of life come those who were quick to come up are now quick to go down.

Musing Through Matthew- Wayside Seeds

Let us muse again today Matthew 13:4 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our verse of study for today we find the wayside seed. The seed here is the Word of God and the master sower is Jesus. When Jesus sowed they would often fall on the hard travel wayside were the fowl of the air or dirty bird the devil would devour them. If the heart is not softened by the Holy Ghost the Word will not enter and will be removed by the evil one of this world.

Musing Through Matthew- The Sower Parable

Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:3 and the theme of Jesus the king. Our Lord is now in a boat using it as a pulpit to preach to those standing on the shore. His first sermon is on the sower parable. A parable is an earthly message with a heavenly meaning. What a parable this is full of heavenly meaning. Jesus said, behold a sower went forth to sow. Our Lord sees Himself as the sower who went forth. He went forth from His Father to dwell in human flesh. His job while here was to sow His Father’s word. Now that He is gone He looks for us to become sowers in His place.

Musing Through Matthew- Not Quiet Long

Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:2 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today our Lord finds it is not quiet long. A great multitude gathers around Him to be taught by Him. They press upon Him so hard He launches out into a boat and uses it for pulpit. He sits down and begins to teach them as they stand along the shore. Spurgeon said, the teacher sat and the people stood, we should have less sleeping in our congregation if this arrangement still prevailed.

Musing Through Matthew- Rest By The Sea

Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:1 and the theme of Jesus the king. As we start a new chapter today we’re confronted with our Lord and rest by the sea. He has been in a spiritual battle with the religious crowd and those of His own family. He now comes apart for quiet meditation. What better place to ponder the things of God but on the seashore gazing at His own handiwork of creation. Oh how calming to Him but ever greater will it rest us. Let us come apart often before we come apart.
