dc.description.abstract|My job is easy today – Jesus did it for me! I don't have to explain the gospel, because the explanation is there. But we still have to listen and understand it.  It's still a lesson we need to learn.  The word of God is here and readily accessible, but how many people think about it seriously?  Lots of people go to church. Lots of people say they are Christian, but how many are living the Christian life and acting on the word of God?  Too often the word is like the seed in the first three circumstances.  People go to church, but as soon as they leave, the words are gone. They don't think about it again until next week. They get too busy with their day to day lives, and religion is choked out. Their good intentions are eaten up by materialism, or choked out by their daily lives, or their intentions don't have roots and don't survive in the outside world. |Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear, but it's not enough to hear the word of God, we must live it. We should be the house where the Lord lives.  We can't let the faith and fervor we feel at church wither up and die outside the church walls. We need to hear the word of God, really listen, think about it, understand it, and live it.  We need to be the rich soil in which God's word can take root and thrive. It's easy to let evil or apathy take over. It's hard to have conviction and live God's word, but if we do, the harvest will be amazing.en_US
