The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Parable of the Sower

Reflection on the Gospel of the Wednesday

Of The Sixteenth Week In Ordinary Time

Matthew 13:1-9

I love this parable, it shows us great depth. It highlights God’s patience with us, his love for us and his respect for the gift of freedom he has gifted us. Yet the marvellous God that he is; he speaks his Word and embeds it in our lives with an invitation to us, to mature in Him, one day at a time.

I have explained this in the past; this parable is about a soil and the grace of the Word of God. As the Bible states, God’s word is never fruitless, always completing what it sets out to do. It is not four types of soils, but one soil, wayward and barren, that is spoken about. God’s Word spoken over it, slowly and gently God shepherds this soil onwards. From being wayward and barren to be rocky and resisting, then through a process of thorns and thistles, to finally being fruitful. Fruitful to the extent of 400 fold over. Our entire life is a process, and leads us towards maturity. Many times we loose focus of this and think change is an overnight process, and God needs to overpower us. God is ever gentle and patient, leading us onward through conviction and desire, through showing his love for us. We need to be grateful and open to God to work in and through us. Lets pray then to the Holy Spirit, asking him to help us through this process of being perfected  into God’s Image.
