< Back to Mark Chapter 4

    We can learn so much from this chapter if people would just open up their eyes and ears. As Jesus said, "you have eyes, but cannot see." "you have ears, yet you cannot hear." We need to take His Words and apply them to our daily life and share with others to bring forth fruit to grow for the Kingdom of God.

    we live in a world where many thorns and thistles are rising trying to choke out the truth putting it away in a closet or covering it up, we are to be the light not blinded by darkness that think they are doing good by God but still in the grips of the fowler, it's not about the world and embracing sin but delivering the word, a house cant stand divided, you cant have it both ways God Bless
  • Obbie Beal

    18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (education, more education, laziness, money, more money, careers, cars, cloths, anger, meanness, can easily be thorn(s) in our life if allowed; these will choke the word

    Whats the difference in the 'kingdom of God' and the 'kingtom of Heaven'?
  • BSP
    Verse 9~Jesus did not just want people to hear his words, but he wanted people to act on them.
  • BSP
    Verse 27~The man has no control over spiritual growth. Spiritual growth can't be forced or sped up.
  • Eutychus
    I think vs 24, to be one of most precious verses in the N.T. It seems to set forth an important spiritual truth...

    You will get out of reading, hearing and studying God's Word, what it is you put into it. "For with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again..."

    This is a powerful admonition for us to study and to hear His Word. Romans 10:17...

  • Servant of God
    The storm at sea doesn't let up as Jesus resides in heaven and we on earth have "little faith". We must fend for ourselves, the blind leading the blind. The word has been sown. The sun came up and the earth germinated not the seed for the ground was hard. Thorns and thisles choked the Word for there was lies and corruption. But some shall hear and faint not in their pursuit of the truth, few.
  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    We should not let the cares of this world affect us
  • Cathryn
    i agree with how we shouldn't let the cares of this world life effect us.
  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    We need grow in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
  • BSP
    Verses 18 and 19: The anxieties of life and wanting material things can cause one's love for God and for God's Word to be choked out and die.
  • Cody
    There is not a storm big enough god can not handle in a blink of an eye
  • BSP
    Verse 24 reminds me of the principle that you get out of something how much you put into something.
  • A disciple
    Eze. 8:12 "..Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery?.." When we come before the Lord to hear His word, we have to know WHO it is, that we come before; and with Him who sees into our innermost selves, and shines light upon all our thoughts and intents; we must examine ourselves in truth to set in order before Him.

    To Felicia - AMEN Felicia; Acts 2:38
  • Felicia
    Let us wake Jesus up in our storms by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving and He will speak the only three words Peace, be still. His creation is subject to His voice. This should help increase our faith and remember that Jesus is with us whether in the boat or in the fire He is inside of us who believe. Just call upon His name and His presence will appear. Lord, you are good to me Thanks!
  • Bruce
    Anthony: Joe, you can be sure he is not talking about possessions. He's talking about true treasures received by reading studying the word with prayer telling others, helping them in their walk. The more you do these things the more you receive. V-23,24,25 go together. Your spiritual ears are opened when you do the above
  • Anastacio
    Jesus calms the storm what a great phrase its like the storms that he calms in our lives.
  • Mim
    to BSP Mark 4:22
    Pray things are brought to light soon, strange times we are living in.
  • BSP
    Mark 4:22 shows that nothing done in secret will remain a secret forever. Eventually all things are brought into the light sooner or later. If someone thinks they are getting away with something then it's good to know that things will be brought forward and dealt with eventually because God sees everything and nothing is hidden from His sight.
  • Nenbe Francis
    If you are in christ, you will over come any type of storm that may comes your way. You will not fall so long as Jesus is in your boart.
  • Kenneth
    I believe that Jesus is teaching us that we must be willing to give God and people our best so that God and people will give us their best in return.
  • Joe
    Anthony - I'm not sure vs 25 means material things. What about: To he that hath faith, more will be given him and he that hath not faith, from him shall be taken ... One could also change the word faith to understanding. Now I am not trying to add words to the scripture, but I do wonder about the intended meaning of this verse
  • Insight 777
    Verse 12 - People are shown the truth of the future of mankind with parables of past events.
    Convert = cause to change in form, character, function. If people do not understand the parables and teach falsely, they will change the lessons taught and forgive themselves the lies they teach as being truth.
  • Anthony for verse 25
    Like a lot of things in the Bible, here's a verse I never really agreed with or liked. It actually is mean spirited a saying. At least I think so. So you're saying "Ok for those fortunate enough to have, they'll get more, if you don't then it sucks to be you, out of spite you'll not only get anything but what little you do have will be taken from you" Yeah that's gracious to be sure.
  • Charles
    Mark 4 is a chapter of direction and instruction if we would follow the instructions and directions of Christ our lives would be much different
  • Brianna for verse 11
    The deep things of God are not for everyone. Though Jehovah God is good towards all, he reserves special rights for those who love him whole souled. He reveals insight into the future events ahead of us to, those who would appreciate. It is as Jesus said, do not throw your pearls before swine.
  • Ron
    Remember, the disciples were already in the boat with Christ which should have been enough to secure their hearts on safety, the same applies to Christians who fear unnecessarily today however bleak the outlook at the time because satan is as a roaring lion ready and eager to pounce at any moment. The world 's tide will always be contrary to saints, hence the need for strong faith whatever attack the enemy levels at us. It is rarely noticed that there were other boats following them on that same rough sea who were without the assurance of Christ as an anchor to rely on. It is the same today for all Saints who are in the safe keeping of having The Saviour with them. What ever happened to those other boats only God knows, they had heard The Word and seen the miracles but how many were lost because they did not partake of the true Bread of life even when they had watched and even share in eating the miracle food from the hand of the Lord himself. Time is short, beware the satanicly inspire doubts from an already sentenced prince of darkness.
  • Antoinette
    About having faith and believe on God 's word as I read it, and when I hear it preached. You have to believe in it with your heart when it it received, study more of it, then tell others about it. It takes time to fully understand most of it as some of the word is in parables. There is no rushing with it, and if we do not understand it well enough, we might confuse others. Most people get choke when trials if these world present themselves. Also, we must guard the word, and receive it with our hearts, not just gladly in front of others, but must retain it deep in our hearts. Just like the mustard seed, sooner or later we will become fruitful. Every seed has a different time to bare fruit. Some seeds can be attack by satan, some do not get any attack at all. Thanking God for his word again.
