"And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lust of other things, entering in, choke the word, and it become unfruitful." Mark 4:18, 19
IN JESUS TODAY!
We all have many cares and concerns in our life lately, whether it is the concern for our national safety and security, the suffering in the real- estate markets, the rising of prices, the lack of jobs, crime, schools, etc, etc, the list can go on and on as we all have cares that fight for our attention. All of these things are called thorns because they choke the word of God in our life. What can we do about this? Seek ye first the Kingdom of heaven and all else will be added unto you, cast your cares upon the Lord and He will sustain you, and take no thought of what ye will eat or drink because the Lord careth for you. The reason why we have to let go of these cares and concerns is because they take up all the space in our hearts and minds and leave no room for God. When we have no room for God his kingdom cares and concerns are set on the back shelf and ignored. The cares and concerns of God are very important to the Kingdom of heaven. Things such as winning souls, the comforting of His people, the caring for His church, the feeding, gathering, carrying, and leading of His sheep are set aside for others to do or to not do because they have cares too. This has an adverse effect on all of us as we witness our society change and the church suffer.
Jesus wants us to be free from the cares of this world so that we can attend to the eternal cares of life that grow His Kingdom, he wants us to be fruitful and healthy, and not worrying and stressing about this life. Turn your eyes and hearts upon Jesus and His cares today.
FOCUS ON JESUS AND ALL YOUR TROUBLES WILL DISSAPPEAR!
