“The seed that fell among the thorns represents those who hear God's word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life and the lure of wealth, so no fruit is produced.”  
Matthew 13:22 

Easter is this Sunday and when I heard the word thorns, I really listened to what was being said. 

Jesus wore a crown of thorns for us!  Why a crown of thorns?  In Matthew 13:22, the seed was tossed on thorny ground, so the worries, cares, stresses of this life and the love of money stopped the seed from taking root and growing.

Jesus took the thorns, cares, worries, and stress, so why take them back!?  In Isaiah 53:4 it says “Surely he has borne our griefs (sickness, weakness, distress, emotional pain) and carried our sorrows:..”. 

As Easter approaches, remember that Jesus wore the crown of thorns for you!  He took and paid for ALL your pain!   He shouted, “It Is Finished”!  Take the finished Word and work of Jesus, believe it, and let it grow in your heart that is good ground.

“But he that received seed in the good ground is he that hears the word, and understands it; who also bears fruit, and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” (Matt 13:23)  Fruit WILL grow.  Keep reading and listening to the words of Jesus and you will see a hundredfold crop.  Verse 23 says that we will hear and understand His Word!  Your pains, weakness, distress, sickness, will leave because of Jesus and the power of His Word!

Many blessings,
