    Verse 11: The Bible is likened to a seed here. We must get the Word of God into our minds and sink it deep down into our hearts.
  • Steve morrow
    LUKE 8:11 now the parable is this the seed is the word of GOD --8:12-- those by the wayside are they that hear then cometh the devil and taketh away the word out of their hearts --- LEST THEY SHOULD BELIEVE AND BE SAVED --- 8:13 --- they on the rock are they which when they hear receive the word with joy and these have no root which for a while believe and in time of temptation fall away
  • Steve morrow
    LUKE 8:14 and that which fell among thorns are they which when they have heard go forth and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life and bring no fruit to perfection --8:15-- but that on the good ground are they which --- in an honest and good heart --- keep it and bring forth fruit with patience
  • Brother Richard
    Luke 8 is one of those chapters that you will overlook wonderful lessons in if you read it to fast. For example, vs.41
  • Servant of God
    What does it mean, Salvation, and why should one sweat it? Some think it's easy as accepting Jesus in your heart. Would that it was as easy as holding hands in a circle and feigning ecstasy! But it is about your human experience on earth, altogether. It is about deriving from the Word what God intends. And changing dramatically, resisting sin, as God, the Father has taught since Adam and Eve.
  • A disciple
    "Therefore see ye how ye hear; for it shall be given to him that hath, and whoever hath not, also that that he weeneth (thinks, imagines, assumes wrongly) that he have, shall be taken away from him." Luke 8:18 (Wycliffe Bible) Whether it be the work of the devil, or one's neglect of working on himself, or misguided mingling with things of life; WE OURSELVES will account for how we act on the Word.
