Sowing Seeds


Thank you for coming to worship with us at Salvation Sermons, site of the weekly sermon blog. This website is dedicated to people just like you who share the values taught to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – values too often forgotten by our peers and family members who have lost their way from the righteous path to heaven.

Receive the messages of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ delivered to you from your extended internet family. Take the Word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to heart. Carry them with you for they are the keys to the door of redemption. Only through heeding His call can we succeed in finding eternal salvation and enter into His kingdom.


Today’s New Testament reading is a parable from the Scripture of Luke:

And when a great crowd came together and people from town after town came to Him, He said in a parable: "A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it. And some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew with it and choked it. And some fell into good soil and grew, and yielded a hundredfold."
– Luke 8
What does this mean for all of us today? What is the Word – the message at play? And how is it spreading?

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the sower in this parable, and we are the soil. He spreads the Word among us. We must be prepared for the Word. Without the Word in our hearts we will burn forever in the fiery pits of hell. But after we receive the Word, we too become the sower of seeds. It becomes our responsibility to convey the message of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to others.

What will we do with the false Word of Satan – the temptation that comes at us from all directions? Stories of sexual promiscuity. Drugs and alcohol. Poisonous song lyrics and media blitzes. Deceit and murder. We are exposed to them every second of every day. We must resist. We must not spread the false Word.

The Satin Strangler that has been in the news so much is the personification of the devil’s false Word. She lures men in. She seduces them . . .

. . . for her filthy lustful pleasure. She offers them her body. Then she kills them. Strangles them. How many men? The count rises every day. We see the stories on television. We read about her in our newspapers and our magazines. We download news feeds and blog entries and chat room gossip about her through our computers. We receive emails and tweets on our hand held devices. The false Word of this she-devil’s work on this earth is everywhere.

How do we respond? What do we say about a woman who seduces men and then kills them? Do we put a stop to the false Word of Satan?

Picture our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ telling the parable about sowing seeds. One voice in a group of people. One voice against the wind. Imagine if He had the opportunities we have today to reach out to others.

Today the Word has so much more fire power than a single voice in the wind. Sermons such as this are accessible to everyone around the world. Every square foot of this planet. Every single day. In the form of our blogs for you to read. 100 million blog readers in these United States. 400 million around the world. All receiving the transmissions of our electronic voice. Imagine the seed you could sow through the internet alone. Imagine the strength and the reach and the power – the almighty power – of the Word.

We have the ability not just to receive the Word – not just to stand there passively – not just to wait and see if it finds us. But also the ability to speak the Word to others. To be the voice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The Word has to find its way through all the other voices out there. The cacophony of Babel. The tongues of Satan. The false Word is everywhere. Nearly 200 million blogs and feeds and tweets each day. The Word of Satan spreads like wildfire on a hot windy day. The Satin Strangler story is one of many flames in that wildfire, friends.

In Galatians we read that “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” We must become the sowers of the Word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, or we will become the Word of Satan.
