    BSP; Good words! "He that sows the good seed is the Son of Man" the good seed is the word of God sown into our hearts. We must have a good and honest heart to receive the word right so that it will sprout and grow in us and come to maturity and bear good fruit unto God. We are known by our fruit; our fruit is to be in the image and likeness of God: that's how it is known that we are men! Gen. 1:26

    Verse 11: The word of God is likened to a seed. We must get this seed deep down into our hearts in order for it to produce fruitage.

    Verse 45: Since Jesus had to ask who touched him, this indicates that Jehovah God saw the woman and he used the power that he had given Jesus to heal her.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We learned in verse 1 that Jesus "went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God". So, He did not miss out any city or village to avoid the excuse that they did not have the opportunity to hear the Word, see the miracles and see the Saviour in action. Today, we also have no excuse as the Word is now preached throughout the world.
