Spurgeon, “Sown Among Thorns”

“The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.” Matthew 13:22

I would put it to you, my dear hearer, have you been fruitful?
Have you been fruitful with your wealth?
Have you been fruitful with your talent?
Have you been fruitful with your time?
What are you doing for Jesus now?

Salvation is not by doings, you are saved by grace.
But if you are so saved, prove it by your devoted life.

Consecrate yourself anew this day wholly to your Master’s service. You are not your own, but bought with a price, and if you would not be like these thorn-choked seeds, live while you live, with all-consuming zeal.
