Pluck Out the Thorns from Your Heart

Using the Parable of the Sower (Luke 8.5-15), Jesus taught
that there are four conditions of the heart. Either the heart is hardened and
the Word of God cannot penetrate, or the heart is shallow and the roots cannot
grow deep, or the heart is filled with thorns which chock the heart, or the
heart is rich fertile soil which produces fruit a hundred fold. Most of us
spend most of our time surrounded by thorns, so God has given us His Church to
assist with plucking the thorns from our heart. Without proper care, our heart
will never grow deep roots and produce the fruit of faith, but by using the
life of the Church you can pluck out the thorns from your heart and produce
fruit a hundred fold for the glory of God.
