Luke 8: 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
The seed is the written Word of God, and His counsels and His wisdom
12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
Then comes the devil physically, mentally and spiritually lifts and carries away the Logos word from their hearts that through the lack of efficacy and energy of the Logos they may not receive salvation. The Logos Word talks about designs, counsels and blueprints of God. This is also called God’s wisdom.
(How many times do we have a lack of the Word in us because of busyness and its efficacy is not seen and we stay in bondage.)
13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
These, root never bear. The root is what hooks us to something so that we can acquire a foundation. Many do not even allow the hooking root to form. In the good season they receive with joy. In the season of trial because there was not root, they release themselves from following the Lord.
14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
By the anxieties, riches and hedonistic pleasures found in their livelihood, they become utterly suffocated and choked and are not able to bring anything concerning the Lord into maturity and completion.
15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
To keep the Word means to grasp it, keep it and make it our own; make it real. This is the way that the Logos must be followed. As they do so, they bring salvation to themselves, always in the realm of endurance. God requires endurance from us as we keep His things under every season and bring forth fruit.
Luke 16: 10 He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much. He who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
The one who is faithful in the very least and the most inferior of all things. ……whoever is unjust and dishonest in the in the very least and the most inferior of all things….
